The ferry Herjólfur will take us to Heimaey or the home island. Westman islands are a group of islands off the south coast of Iceland. The children in Westman islands have over the years rescued Puffling's in August and September. In autumn when it is getting dark, the Puffling's (the young puffins) start leaving the nest. Some of them are attracted by the lights in the town so instead of flying toward the ocean they fly into the town. Then the rescue team, mainly the children and of course inhabitants in the island go out in the evening with cardboard boxes and collect the Puffling's and next day they take them to the beach and help them towards the ocean. But before that the Puffling's are brought to the Puffling Patrol where each Puffling is weighed, wingspan measured, tagged and given a specific number.
