Sky lanterns and helium balloons: an assessment of impacts on livestock and the environment - AC0229

Description
The study investigates:
• The impact sky lanterns and helium balloons are having on the environment, livestock and crops;
• What local authorities in England and Wales and authorities in other EU Member States are doing to address concerns arising from their use; and,
• The value of the market for sky lanterns in England and Wales.

The results of this study will help to establish whether there is sufficient evidence to support any decisions on future action on sky lanterns and helium balloons.
