Join Scottish Badgers

Why become a Member?

Criminals in Scotland kill at least one badger every week. Many of these animals suffer agonising deaths as they are ripped apart by dogs. Every day of the year vehicles using Scottish roads kill at least five badgers and we estimate that over 2000 are killed annually. We aim to protect badgers from these and other threats and to promote their study and conservation. To do this, we need your support. Scottish Badgers is the only charitable organisation solely concerned with the welfare of Scotland’s badgers.

Benefits of Membership

For a modest annual sum you can help our work and also receive our newsletter which keeps members up-to-date with all the latest badger news from Scotland and further afield.  We include information on our training events, local group surveys, guest articles and much more. 

How to Join

**Please note that you will recieve a link to download a Member's pack as soon as you have paid but all membership applications are subject to approval by the trustees. You will be notified as soon as possible if your application is rejected. **
