Join Scottish Badgers

Why become a Member?

Scottish Badgers is the only charity working in Scotland to protect badgers, their setts and natural habitats.

Badgers face multiple threats in the modern world, whether it be through high numbers of road casualties, deliberate badger persecution, or sett damage as a result of development, forestry and agricultural works, now more than ever badgers need your help.

Scottish Badgers works with transport agencies to investigate road casualty hotspots, alongside Police Scotland and SSPCA to gather intelligence of crimes and assist with investigations, and advice to members of the public, councils and professionals in the forestry, ecological and land management sectors in relation to badgers.

We carry out a variety of training courses for different sectors, work alongside young people and vulnerable adults as part of our ongoing 'Earn Your Stripes' project, and work with MSPs to raise concerns regarding planning, criminal and ecological legislation with both the Scottish and UK governments.

We do all this with one full time Project Officer, one part time Operations Coordinator and a small team of very active and dedicated volunteers.
