Badger

Badgers are an incredibly inquisitive mammal which need to be maintained in the Great British landscape. Their black fur with white stripes are distinctive in the woodland landscape but their stocky build and long claws make them resistant to the majority of predators. 


Although Badgers are protected under The Protection of Badgers Act 1992, their need for conservation still remains due to badger baiting and hunting with dogs. 


Fact - A badger can weigh from 10-12kg with a body length of about 85-90cm. This makes the badger the biggest land mammal in entirety of Great Britain. 


Donating to our cause will ensure that the habitats that badgers need to survive are created and maintained although careful planning projects which would involve the most appropriate trees being selected for their burrows, commonly known as setts. In bulk orders, these projects would see the number of badgers rise so click below to see how you can get involved.
