About This Project

Many species of wildlife are exposed to lead in the environment, sometimes with devastating consequences. Some impacts are highly visible and well-documented, but many lesser-known species may be heavily impacted by lead poisoning too. Active surveillance is used to minimize the harms of lead poisoning, particularly in children. We aim to develop a system of active surveillance for lead poisoning in wildlife based on wildlife rehabilitation patients and hunter-harvested waterfowl.
