The RSPB included a note in its April e-newsletter asking its members to sign Rob Sheldon’s e-petition on banning toxic lead ammunition. this was wittily called ‘Last chance to take the lead’.
If this heralds a month of frantic activity on this subject from the RSPB, whose agreed policy is that there should be a ban on the use of toxic lead ammunition, then I would be both surprised and pleased. Let’s see.
The e-petition closes on 4 May and has reached a respectable 15,000+ signatures in 5 months.
Well done Rob! You deserved more support from RSPB and WWT. We’ll come back to this.
