During tree planting activities currently underway at the Port Granby site, staff spotted a duckling that appeared to be injured. The staff always on the lookout for wildlife during work, tried unsuccessfully to locate a mother or siblings. With the help of an Environmental Technician it was determined the duckling was likely abandoned or orphaned.
Staff sprang into action, placing the duckling in a partially covered box lined with grass bedding, and providing the duckling with food and water. The staff then reached out to several wildlife organizations and the duckling was transported to the Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre in Napanee. Here it will be well cared for and released back into the wild at soon as it is well enough.
CNL staff and our contractors remain committed to the health and safety of the wildlife and the environment.
