Restore Nature Now: Meeting Point

With just 10 days to go - it’s time to make your plans to join us #RestoreNatureNow

We are proud to be mobilising for badgers at the Restore Nature Now march in London on Saturday 22 June, at what is set to be the biggest-ever gathering for nature and climate. 

At nearly a mile long, the assembly points on Park Lane have been divided into 4 blocks, Woods, Water, Land & Air and each block has lettered and numbered sections. Sign markers with reference numbers will be added to lampposts on the day, and stewards will also be available.

The meeting point for all those marching for badgers is the LAND BLOCK.  This covers sections G18 to J30. 

Our dedicated 'Badger Army' Meeting point is Land Block - Section G - Lamppost 20. 

We are sharing this meeting point with our friends at League Against Cruel Sports.

Full details of where the assembly points are along Park Lane can be found in the Assembly Guide and Interactive Map on the Resore Nature Now Website > and information is also available on accessibility >

We look forward to seeing you with your badger banners, outfits, and masks at our dedicated meeting point!


Cull News Release

Why did Natural England order a badger cull against its own scientific advice?

Badger Trust analyses the release of Natural England documents. Last week, we revealed that Natural England (NE) issued supplementary cull licences again this year against its own scientific advice.  

The confidential documents also revealed that Defra wanted to continue to pursue the cull to keep the farming industry onside despite the lack of evidence of its effectiveness at reducing bTB in cattle.

We released these documents to Badger Groups last week, and we have now released them publicly so that everyone can read the exchange of information. We also share our analysis of the documents.
