  • Give reasons why birds are likely to be a lower food safety risk when farms are in areas with abundant natural habitat.
  • Evaluate farm situations (telephone wires, etc.) where birds are more likely to cause contamination.
  • Share reasons why habitats like hedgerows do not have a greater risk of food borne pathogens than the crop itself.
