withRalph Eldridge, Machias Seal Island Lightkeeper.
Ralph has been a lightkeeper for 40 years, 14 of them spent on Machias, an important breeding colony for Atlantic puffins and other seabirds and the only disputed boundary between Canada and the USA. In 2014 Ralph spotted the first tufted puffin to be seen on the Atlantic coast since the 1830s, and he managed to photograph it! His presentation will focus on his experiences over the years in stories and photographs that capture the island’s changing landscape and wildlife through the seasons.
