ABQ BioPark to give healthier bird food to visitors.
Don’t feed bread to the ducks. Turns out, it’s bad for them. Bread is not only unhealthy to ducks and geese, it also contaminates the water in the pond.
The ABQ BioPark is hosting a “Bread Amnesty Day” to raise awareness of this issue and give healthier bird food to visitors. The event will occur from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Sept. 2-4 at the Tingley Beach boat pond.
“During our Bread Amnesty Day, we’ll take your bread, pretzels, popcorn, Cheetos and other unhealthy foods and trade them for waterfowl-friendly pellets and grains,” said Kathy Lang, ABQ BioPark Curator of Tingley Beach, in a press release.
The event will also feature educational materials about why bread is bad for birds and water quality.
