Funk Island is a global ocean Seabird Capital. It is the largest breeding site of Common Murre in the world, and home to colonies of Gannets, Razorbills, Puffins, and Fulmars.
In this web series, we visit Funk Island with Bill Montevecchi (University Research Professor, Memorial University of Newfoundland) as our guide and interpreter, and learn about the island’s inhabitants in the context of the larger marine environment, of which they are an integral part.
The Funk Island Ecological Seabird Reserve is situated about 40 km off the northeast coast of Newfoundland.
The website consists of a series of 9 videos, each exploring different aspects of life on the island and Bill’s scientific research.
