Defenders of Wildlife Take Action

Get the Lead Out of Oregon!

Bald Eagle, Phillip Kuntz

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) is currently soliciting the public’s opinion on whether or not to ban lead ammunition in the state.

Lead poisoning is an excruciating way for wildlife to die, and human exposure to it can be disastrous. The threat posed by lead ammunition is simply too great to ignore, and the time is long overdue to protect people and wildlife from this threat.

Lead is a known toxin that we have already removed from everything from paint to gasoline, and pencils to pipes

Please take action below to speak out on behalf of Oregon’s wildlife.
