Based on your feedback and comments in our most recent post regarding the impact of lead ammunition in wetlands, we will continue to address this issue. This time by presenting a short awareness video in order to once again highlight the negative consequences that lead has in our wetland environments.

In Albania, there are still no studies that document the impact of lead on our wetlands, however the phenomenon exists.

Lead deposited in wetlands affects not only waterfowl and other organisms that feed on these environments, but also other links in the food chain, such as raptors, scavengers, and even humans. The presence of lead in our body and other organisms causes serious disorders and, in some cases, death.

Understandably, legal changes are needed in our approach to lead shot ammunition. Through inclusive decision-making and fruitful discussion on potential time line on the basis of an environmentally friendly approach.
