While the effects of mercury on human health are gaining increasing exposure across the country, it is particularly important to the tribes as it not only affects health, but traditional lifestyles as well.

This mercury session was planned and presented by the National Tribal Environmental Council to aid in addressing these concerns of the WRAP’s Tribal Caucus.
