Are duck ramps awesome or a waste of taxpayer dollars?
The duck ramps were built in collaboration with City Wildlife, a nonprofit organization in D.C. that helps sick and injured animals.
Anne Lewis, the president of City Wildlife, said a ramp could be the difference between life and death for the ducklings. “Ducklings get into the water—often helped there by visitors—and then can’t get out because of the high curb at the water’s edge,” she said in an email. “They will drown from exhaustion or die of starvation unless they have a way to get out of the water.”
But Congressman Walker derided the ramps as another one of Washington's "bright ideas."
