Northamptonshire Badger Group is actively involved in all aspects of badger welfare across Northamptonshire.
We were established in 1994 and covered the Northern half of the County as the North Northants Badger Group. In 2012, Brockwatch, who covered the Southern half of the county closed.
Therefore in 2018 we officially expanded becoming the Northamptonshire Badger Group, to fulfil the need for a countywide group to best protect Badgers.
HOW WE HELP BADGERS
Collect and record data on badgers, their activity and setts to hold an accurate picture of badgers in the County.
Supply information and work with responsible authorities, planners, developers and highways to help protect badgers and their habitat from the effects of development.
Encourage the use of roadside warnings and road tunnels where badgers are most at risk.
Assist Wildlife Crime Police Officers and the RSPCA where harm to badgers is suspected.
We rescue and rehabilitate injured or orphaned badgers, returning them to the wild.
Work closely with other wildlife groups to best protect badgers and be their advocates.
HOW WE HELP PEOPLE
Respond to members of the public when they have queries about badgers or badgers on their properties.
Provide information about badgers, their way of life, and the threats they face by giving talks and attending events.
Offer to our members the opportunity to learn the skills needed to help badgers.
