Ducks, Ducks, Geese: Over 60 birds rescued in joint effort
OGDEN — Weber State University (WSU) and Wasatch Domestic Waterfowl Resource (WDWR) recently received honors for their work that rescued geese and ducks this fall.
An In Defense of Animals press release reported that, in September, WSU and WDWR joined forces to protect at-risk waterfowl while Weber State’s Ada Lindquist Plaza water feature was drained for maintenance.
Ducks and geese rescued and rehomed
After 12 hours, the volunteers safely gathered 30 ducks and 34 geese and WDWR found “forever homes” for every last one.
WSU and WDWR both received Happy Honk certificates from the In Defense of Animals’ National Goose Protection Coalition.
The certificate recognizes the organizations for:
…your kindness and compassion toward geese in your community. Your good deed will save lives and encourage others to coexist peacefully with geese.
“This means so much to me and the rest of us working tirelessly for the waterfowl and animals in general… I will frame the certificate and hang it in our future location,” said Adison Smith of WDWR upon receiving the Happy Honk award.
