An effort to revert the wildlife consumption trend

More than 100 million animals are reported killed by hunters in the United States each year. That number does not include the millions of animals for which kill figures are not maintained by state wildlife agencies. Every year in the United States more than 4,000 tons of lead are shot into the environment by hunters. This results in the poisoning deaths of approximately 20 million animals.

Nature and Context

Efforts to revert the wildlife consumption trend, empower government agencies and stimulate a greater public involvement in wildlife protection are important for protecting our vulnerable ecosystems. As human consumption, pollution, and carelessness eliminate and endanger many species, continuing and updating how we monitor illegal behavior like poaching will be important for the wildlife that is so threatened.
