As a member of Somerset Badger Group you play a vital role in safeguarding Somerset’s badgers. With your help and support we will be able to help badgers by promoting their conservation, welfare and protection of badgers, their setts and their habitats.
The Group promotes the protection and conservation of badgers and holds full membership of the Badger Trust, the only registered charity dedicated to promoting the conservation, welfare and protection of badgers, their setts and their habitats throughout Great Britain.
We work in partnership with the Somerset Wildlife Trust and have wide experience of working closely with the Police, the R.S.P.C.A. and other Conservation authorities. We also work closely with Secret World Wildlife Rescue (SWWR) responding to calls regarding injured or orphaned badgers.
A variety of talents is needed and welcomed amongst our members to help us with badger problems, sett surveys, sett monitoring and recording road casualties. We also need members to help with fund raising, social events and education. No input is too small and any help is always appreciated. We are also happy to welcome new members who are keen to learn more about badgers and keep a look out for badgers locally in their area.
By becoming a member of The Somerset Badger Group your help means we can work with individuals and other organisations to help educate the public and enthuse them to care for all wildlife, but we can also assist people who have genuine problems with badgers.
