Stop Feeding Ducks Bread

Conservationists are urging park-goers to stop feeding ducks bread—and for good reason. While it may seem like an innocent activity, it’s wreaking havoc not only on the health of the ducks, but their habitats and surrounding ecosystem too. Processed items like bread, crackers and chips can cause the birds to become ill or even deformed, and if excreted undigested, they lead to harmful lake-algae growth and attract disease-ridden vermin.
