We survey the location and condition of badger setts in the two counties and our records are the primary source of information about the status of badgers in the two counties. We are able to provide data for environmental surveys for planning purposes.
Local coordinators in the group are equipped with rescue equipment and we frequently attend injured badgers. Wherever possible they are taken for treatment to one of a number of veterinary facilities such as the Aylesbury Wildlife Hospital, for treatment. We have a facility for rehabilitation post-treatment prior to release back into the wild.
The Group liaises with local official bodies, such as councils and police wildlife liaison officers on all aspects to do with badgers.
Education is an important aspect of our work and we give talks to a variety of schools and local interest groups. In addition we attend many public events throughout the year.
Members are able to take part in field work, attend monthly group and local meetings. For more information please go to the membership page.
The Group manages a badger watching hide jointly with the Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust at Tewin. The Audrey Randall Hide is open to the public from April to October each year. Unfortunately most people have only seen dead badgers on the side of the road and these can be reported via this website, if they are in our area. This data provides further vital information about the status of badgers in the two counties.
