The Albuquerque BioPark is asking people who visit Tingley Beach to leave the bread at home.

Many people use it to feed the ducks but they say it’s bad for the animals and contaminates the water.

The BioPark is trying to raise awareness and encourage people to bring bird food instead.

BioPark workers will exchange bread, pretzels, popcorn, Cheetos and other unhealthy foods for pellets and grains.

The event will run from Sep. 1-3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
