From USFWS National Refuge: Bald Eagles and Lead Poisoning Information Meetings

If you are interested in the issue of bald eagles and lead poisoning, and you live in MN/WI, there are some information sessions hosted by the US Fish and Wildlife Service National Refuge System.  

These information sessions will share the results of research demonstrating the relationship between lead ammunition and lead exposure in bald eagles. A presentation will begin at 6:15 p.m. at each session and will highlight the results of a two-year study which collected 168 deceased bald eagles from the Upper Midwest and examined them for lead exposure.
