John realizes at the end of the
book that keeping Scrawny as a pet is impossible. He is faced with
the difficult decision of what to do with him. Where can he release
him? Will Scrawny be able to live in the wild? Can she survive
on her own? If you were faced with the same problem, what would
you do? Where would you release Scrawny in Rhode Island?
You will visit some web sites that
give information on wetlands in Rhode Island. You need to think about
an appropriate habitat for a mallard duck. Your task is to find a park
in Rhode Island that would serve as a home for Scrawny.
