In front of the Capitol in Washington, built the transition for the ducks
Near the Capitol in Washington, DC has installed ramps for ducklings. This publication reports the Huffington Post.
Structures designed and built by the Federal Agency “Architect of the Capitol”, responsible for the operation and improvement of the Capitol complex in cooperation with the nonprofit organization, City Wildlife, which rescues wild animals in Washington. Ramps were needed to help the birds to move through the rim, surrounding a reflecting pond in front of the Capitol.
