Q: What if I feed the ducks something healthier than bread?
A: In their natural habitat, ducks don't need any food from humans, whether it's bread or something healthier. They get everything they need from the environment around them. Supplementing their diet with anything at all leads to overcrowding, pollution, malnutrition, disease, and loss of natural behavior.
