Will the proposal to criminalise trespass limit help for badgers?

We're calling on you to write to your MP to spell out the negative impacts for badgers and wildlife champions. Read more and find tips for your letter ✍️

#DidYouKnow it only costs an average of Β£200 to cage trap, vaccinate and release a badger?

Meanwhile, trapping and killing a single badger is costing around Β£1100.

We've had a response from Defra to our June 2020 #badgercull challenge letter supported by @RSPCA_official @BornFreeFDN @IFAWUK @WildJustice_org @LeagueACS

Read why we think it's meaningless and exposes lack of a serious policy to control bTB πŸ‘‰

Replying to @BadgerTrust: ICYMI - although really there’s little to miss from Defra, unfortunately.

Who else is already looking forward to longer days and a chance for badger watching later in the year?

We know so many of you found it a tonic last year, as your lockdown stories show. πŸ’š

Not a 🦑 in sight (too busy scratching, or making a new bed perhaps) but we had to share this amazing thread. No 18 is our fav. That expression. What could it see?! Thanks for compiling the list @JoaquimCampa And thanks for your patience, wildlife photographers of the world πŸ™ŒπŸ»

No home is complete with a few badgery touches. Well, we think so at least πŸ˜†

And 'Trufflehunter the Badger' by artist Sarah Williams could be the brock-illiant print you're looking for.

Sarah is making a donation to us for every print sold:

How cute are these needle felt badgers? 😍

They were made by one of our followers, Joanne, who told us that 'combining a love of badgers with such a relaxing hobby is just perfect'.

Is anyone else doing some badger-themed crafts during lockdown?
