National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week with BRWC

This week is National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week and the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center is acknowledging the issue with another installment of their Fall Lecture Series.

Deer hunting season leads to a dramatic increase in lead poisoning cases in the area.

Lead ammunition not only contaminates meat that humans consume, it also poisons wildlife.

Over 80% of eagles and vultures brought to BRWC have dangerously high lead levels with an even higher percentage during hunting season.

Dr. Jen Riley will lead a presentation on Thursday, October 27th to educate on the impacts of lead ammunition on wildlife and the environment and steps to take to prevent it.
