After Save the Geese Bloomsburg sounded the alarm that USDA APHIS Wildlife Services would be removing up to 70 domestic ducks from Fairground Road Park in East Buffalo Township, Humane Long Island’s Duck Defenders program offered a solution beneficial for both the ducks and the community: working in cooperation with Wildlife Services to humanely relocate the domestic ducks to reputable homes and sanctuaries.

Following a successful effort in East Buffalo Township, this burgeoning relationship between Humane Long Island and Wildlife Services will likely save the lives of many more domestic ducks and geese to come. 

Like geese, we fly further together
