How can I help ducks or geese nesting on a roof?

Baby ducks and geese can usually make their own way down from a nest on a roof. But, they may need your help if:

  • The building is more than six meters (two storeys) in height
  • There is a barrier higher than 13 cm preventing them from hopping down
  • The ground below is concrete, cement or other hard material

In any of the above cases, call the BC SPCA Provincial Call Centre at 1-855-622-7722 to help you develop a rescue plan.
