Obama White House Fails to Stand up for Bats

"With nearly 7 million bats dead from the terrible disease white-nose syndrome, the Obama administration is not moving fast enough to stem its spread across the country. That's why on Wednesday the Center for Biological Diversity filed a national petition urging the White House to tell federal land-management agencies to limit human entry into caves to help stop the disease's spread to the West."

EPA Lets Wildlife, Human Lead Poisoning Continue

Obama Administration fails to oppose NRA bill

- Advertisement -

"Millions of birds die every year due to secondary lead poisoning from lead bullets and shot: It's a fact. But the Environmental Protection Agency refuses to regulate the toxic lead in hunting ammunition despite two petitions from the Center for Biological Diversity and 150 allied groups asking for a switch to nontoxic ammo. Bald eagles, highly endangered California condors, swans and many other species of birds are exposed to lead and poisoned by ingesting spent lead shot or scavenging carcasses with lead bullet fragments. People (especially children) who eat game shot with lead ammo risk serious health effects from lead poisoning.

Despite the hard facts about the dangers of lead, the NRA is now jumping in with a bill in the House of Representatives that would stop a key environmental law from protecting animals from lead poisoning in the wild. There's no reason not to save wildlife from these painful deaths: There are plenty of non-lead, nontoxic ammunition on the market today."
