In a really good move that couldn’t come soon enough, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke did away with, former President Obama’s lead ammunition and fishing tackle ban in national wildlife refuges. Yes, elections have good consequences.
Issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on January 19, 2017, Director’s Order No. 219 bans the use of lead ammunition and fishing tackle on lands, waters, and facilities managed by the Service. Today’s action demonstrates Secretary Zinke’s commitment to protecting our country’s treasured outdoor legacy.
