The 90 Day Plan: DAY 78 - Don't Feed the Wildlife

DON’T FEED WILDLIFE—including waterfowl (ducks, geese, swans, etc).  Feeding wildlife is highly discouraged.  It causes animals to lose their fear of humans, makes them more aggressive and spreads diseases.  Plus, human food can make them sick and we don’t want that!  If you want to help animals, the best thing you can do is advocate for native plants and open-lands to promote biodiversity.  This will allow wildlife to the ability to feed themselves.


Challenge:  What are three harmful impacts of feeding waterfowl?  What diseases can large populations of waterfowl spread?
