5 Causes to ban lead shot in wetlands

Lead is poison for birds, biodiversity and people.

Lead-based hunting pollutes our environment and endangers animals and people. It needs to be banned. Banning lead shot in wetlands doesn’t mean banning hunting: safer alternatives to lead shot are available to hunters. The point of banning lead shot is to create a safer, healthier and more sustainable environment for everyone, hunters included.

On the 3rd of September, a European Commission committee put forward a proposal to ban lead shot in wetlands. On the 28th of October, the European Parliament will vote on this proposal.

#Banlead: support the EU Green Deal and European citizens’ demand to protect environmental and human health.
