Help save our badgers

Shropshire Badger Group is currently busy vaccinating badgers against bovine TB on several farms in the county, because we believe vaccination, and not culling, is the way forward to ensure badgers - and cattle - can be free of the disease.

All the work is carried out by volunteers who undertake training in their own time so that they are proficient in catching badgers and vaccinating them while causing the minimum amount of stress to the animals.

The cost of training and the vaccines themselves is borne by the group. This year the vaccination programme will have cost us almost £3,000. We welcome any donations towards our costs, and you can donate via the website donate button, here:

In case anyone is in any doubt that happy, healthy badgers are a wonderful thing, you need look no further than our video:
