Why you shouldn't feed ducks at local reserves

Published on 02 March 2022


It's not a good idea to feed bread to ducks at local reserves, despite how much they seem to like it.

Feeding them bread can cause health problems for ducks and also pollutes the water.

In fact, there's no need to feed ducks anything as they can get enough nutrients in the wild as they can always fly to where more food is available. 

We encourage you to enjoy watching them in their natural environment and leave them to forage for their own food.
