We have great news! The California Fish and Game Commission passed the regulations to phase-out lead ammunition at today’s hearing.Today’s decision implements Assembly Bill 711, which Audubon California co-sponsored in 2013 with Defenders of Wildlife and the Humane Society of the United States.
The vote was unanimous and a great victory for vulnerable birds like the California Condor and the Golden Eagle. California is the first state to commit to protecting wildlife by phasing out lead.
Thank you again for advocacy, none of this is possible without your voice.
