NEW! Watch our 'State of the Badger' film
State of the Badger is our first citizen science project. In this short film, Dr Hannah Trayford, our Campaigns and Research Manager, explains why and how we're doing this study and our hopes for its impact on badger protection.
Plus, our Youth Ambassador and wildlife photographer, Rachel Bigsby, talks to zoologist Billy Heaney about identifying badger signs and how you can get involved in the study as a Badger Champion volunteer. And you'll see lots of beautiful badgers too!
Get social - spread the word about badgers
National Badger Day and Brocktober are brilliant opportunities to share our love for badgers and show how we can make #SpaceforBadgers.
You can follow us on social media to see messages and exclusive content from a whole clan of brilliant badger friends this Brocktober.
Why is National Badger Day held during the Badger Cull?
National Badger Day began long before the badger cull of the past decade. Sadly, we are all too aware that this time of celebration falls during the intensive badger culling period in England as the seemingly endless badger cull continues.
But we won’t let the Government’s senseless slaughter deter us from recognising the beauty and wonder of this amazing native species.
