Ducklings live to quack another day – UQ update

This is the sort of article that just makes me feel good all over grin

Eight one-day-old ducklings were safely rescued on April 14 by Wormalds University contract fire technician Dave Peebles and School of Integrative Biology PhD student Beth Symonds. The ducklings fell down a deep drain near the St Lucia campus bus stop while walking with their parents. While Ms Symonds made duck calls, Mr Peebles collected the ducklings from the drain. After a 90-minute rescue, the ducklings and anxious parents were safely reunited. Staff or students noticing wildlife in need of help should contact Security section, ext. 51234. Mr Peebles noted that Security was looking forward to more calls, but “are a little hesitant about snakes.”
