Video: A future without puffins for south and west Iceland

Erpur Snær Hansen, director of ecological research at the South Nature Centre, has been investigating the population of the Westman Islands since 2007.

If surface sea temperatures remain at current levels or higher, Hansen says, the entire puffin population of south and west Iceland will disappear in the next 10 to 20 years.
