hi jfrancl ~ we have posted a few times about the lead poisoning issue under the topics for REGI and NIWRA  (two rehab centers that have dealt with animals with lead poisoning).  We have also discussed it in our live chat area (but that is of no help here in the forum, of course). We don't seem to have a special area devoted to the topic.  It certainly is a major issue for raptors ~ are you interested in developing a discussion about it?

I have been working with many other people on this issue and its a slow go at best.  I can try to redirect the conversation onto one if the other threads you suggested.  Thank you so much for your input! It's very much appreciated.

Hi jfranci and welcome to our forum.  The Wildcare website has quite a bit of information about the rodenticide issue.  This link: www.wildcarebayarea.org/site/PageServer?pagename=TakeAction_Rodenticide may be of use to you. Wildcare also has updates on their current advocacy issues page: www.wildcarebayarea.org/site/PageServer?pagename=TakeAction

jfrancl, perhaps one of the admins would start a topic under "Ways to Help Wildlife" specifically addressing the lead poisoning issue. I believe that was what Nancy may have been thinking too if you would have an interest in opening discussions here in the forum. Sounds beneficial to me. It is a much discussed topic and might fit under this catagory.

Welcome to the forum btw.

:wub  fantastic love seeing them. What a great pair they are. Wonderful that they will be released to the wild and to new adventures. And then to realize how close to death she was.... WOW

I love how he took the fish over to her. Presenting a gift.  :eclove

Thanks for the update on the otter(s), Beans.  I had been worrying about the little girl otter (she was found close to my neighborhood) and you got this posted before I got my Wildcare newsletter! :clap
