Westmann Islands Saeheimar Aquarium Heimaey Island, Vestmannaeyjar


HI Beakers...I ran across this when looking for pics of Manny earlier  ;D The gifs were taken of patients at the Puffin Rescue there.  Cool stuff!


Patient Hafdís is a playful puffin




Patient name Bárður Mýrdal

Bárður Mýrdal was oiled when he came here this summer from Vík í Mýrdal. Now he's been rinsed and is practicing his swimming for his release.

At Sæheimar you will find 3 exhibitions; the bird, mineral and the aquarium. At the museum you can see a variety of Icelandic birds including migratory and vagrant birds who stay permanently in Iceland and endure the dark and cold Icelandic winter. There is a good exhibition of various lava rocks and minerals.

At Sæheimar you can learn all about the most popular bird in Iceland - the puffin - and meet them live! There are approximately 8 million Puffins in Iceland.
Sæheimar is also a bird rescue center and birds that are found either injured or chicks without parents are brought to the museum.

One rescue story is "Tóti" the PuffinTóti was found abandoned in a puffin colony at 7 days old. He hatched 6 weeks later than the other pufflings. Toti was a tiny guy wandering around at the end of the puffin season when the older & much bigger pufflings in Iceland were about to leave their nest.   
Tóti would not have survived if he wasn't rescued. When Sæheimar rescued Tóti & fed him he was ready to fly however, he was so young & helpless when he was found it was too late to release him & winter was coming, so they decided on raising him at the museum.  ​Tóti adapted very well to the life of humans at this museum. Tóti passed away in 2018 at 7 years old.

Lori, this is the old thread from last year. I started a new one for this year to include all seabirds on Seal Island.
