5 reasons to ban lead shot in wetlands

Lead is poison for birds, biodiversity and humans.

Lead-based hunting pollutes our environment and endangers animals and people. It has to be banned. Banning lead shot in wetlands does not mean prohibiting hunting: hunters have safer alternatives to lead shot. The lead shot ban is intended to create a safer, healthier and more sustainable environment for everyone, including hunters.

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