Lead is highly toxic. If hunters used steel shot instead of lead, as the Danes, Dutch and many Belgian and other wildfowlers already do, we would stop poisoning wildlife and putting people at risk from lead in their shot food.
Policy is needed to make this happen. The current European Commission process (ECHA REACH link below) could significantly reduce risks by harmonising restrictions across Europe - it needs to be supported.
This video summarises the problem and solution for lead poisoning. Please help consign lead ammunition to history by supporting the ECHA process - share this with your MEP or those in your EU country who deal with REACH, food safety or conservation.
