How might we feed Ibis & other birds and create a nice environment for them?
Customer / Problem
Our cities are often situated on waterfronts where, in the past, there have been mangroves home to birds and other wildlife. This means that birds such as ibises have lost their habitat and are left to scrounge for food in city areas, where they are considered pests. For example, at our school, the ibises are a big problem as they knock over bins in search of food, leaving litter scattered everywhere.
Our solution is to install bird feeders at our school and in our community. If the birds have a dedicated space to access food and water, they will be less likely to invade our public spaces searching in bins. The bird feeders would include bird seed and a bird bath so that the birds could have the food source they are looking for without stealing ours.
