Atlatic Puffin - Fuglavernd BirdLife Iceland

Fuglavernd BirdLife Iceland

Fuglavernd BirdLife Iceland is a Non-Government Organisation with 1300 members who pay an annual fee. That funding is the core of our operations. A large part of our work is done by volunteers but we also have two staff members in our office.

  • Fuglavernd advocates for the conservation of bird species and habitats in policy and legislation.
  • Fuglavernd delivers awareness raising campaigns, just like this one for the Atlantic Puffin.
  • Fuglavernd educates others via publication of a magazine, website and social media.

Fuglavernd was recently given a legacy of Hafnarhólmi in Borgarfjörður eystri which is claimed to be the best site to visit the puffins in Iceland.
Our vision is to establish a reserve in Hafnarhólmi, protecting that habitat for puffins and other seabirds who breed there. We would like it to become sustainable as we are a Non-Profit, so that maintenance of the facilities are covered. Having a ranger in the area and thereby creating a local job in a small community is the ultimate goal.
