Outdoor Blog: Migratory Bird Treaty Update

Waterfowl Hunting, Bird Treaty, Duck Hunting
President Joe Biden and his administration will restore The Migratory bird Treaty Act that was weakened under the Trump administration. The treaty is over a century old and was created to protect thousands of bird species from accidentally being killing, a term known as incidental take. An example of this law in action was seen in 2012 when the Deep-Water-Horizon rig accidentally spilt oil into the Gulf of Mexico. This disaster killed at least a hundred-thousand birds, and thus BP (the leasing company) was fined $100 million.
