Badger number 502, vaccinated and released. We are on our way to the next 500 already! A great start to vaccination season which finds up working with new farms/landowners this year as well as farms in Wiltshire & Glos too. We are all volunteers so if you would like to donate towards our ring fenced vaccination fund, then please visit the link below. We can’t thank you enough for all your support since we began offering vaccination as an alternative to the cull back in 2012. www.somersetbadgers.org.uk/donate/ ... See MoreSee Less
Yesterday we kicked off this year's badger vaccination programme by reaching the amazing milestone of vaccinating our 500th badger. This is all due to the dedicated team of vaccinators, other volunteers and collaboration with farmers, landowners and other organisations. The 500th badger was vaccinated on one of the League Against Cruel Sports reserves and we are delighted once again to be working with them. We will be vaccinating on a Somerset farm next week and we will keep you updated. Great to have new farms signing up too this year as well. Thank you for all your support and donations. We are all volunteers and we don’t have the benefit of Defra funding. ... See MoreSee Less

The cub did not hang around at the release site and took off through the potato field to its sett. ... See MoreSee Less
