Badger vaccination with Avon Wildlife Trust

Somerset Badger Group is really happy to be involved in this project with the fantastic team at Avon Wildlife Trust.

Last year Avon Wildlife Trust  began work vaccinating badgers to protect them against bovine TB and help tackle this disease in a way which allows our wild badgers to thrive.

This summer their conversation team vaccinated twelve badgers over two nights, on one of our reserves. This included two cubs, following a two-day training course supplied by Somerset Badger Group

You can read about how it went in this blog by the Nature Picture Library, illustrated with some lovely photos by Neil Aldridge:
