Bird Protection Tips
- Slow down if you see a bird standing in or near a road.
- Don't feed wild birds filleted fish carcasses. The sharp, exposed bones
get caught on pouches or in throats and it's impossible
for the bird to shake them loose or swallow them. If swallowed, the sharp
bones can fatally puncture
the bird's stomach and vital organs.
- Properly dispose of fish hooks, fishing line, plastic six-pack holders,
plastic bags, and other trash.
- Pick up and properly dispose of any trash you see in the water, on the
beach, and on roadsides.
