Puffin head

To record the amazing seabird breeding season on Burhou, the Alderney Wildlife Trust and South East Education Group are using state of the art technology to enable pupils in schools to follow the story of these birds in their classrooms and at home.

This website provides schools with daily updates, live streamed videos and a range of other excellent features to keeps schools and students informed on developments on the island of Burhou during Puffin season (Spring/Summer). Please view the School Zone introduction video below.

Give the gift of LIVE!

Could you help your local primary school benefit from LIVE?


"Having seen first-hand how school children and their teachers came alive when linking to the LIVE project and its webcams, I decided to approach my grandchildren’s school and offer to sponsor them to join the project. They were delighted and now I can follow the puffins on Burhou in person on the public page, all the while knowing my grandkids are speaking to the staff on Alderney and learning so much more about what’s going on.’
