Response to the NatureScot literature review

Posted on

NatureScot (formerly Scottish Natural Heritage) have published their literature review on the impacts of badgers on farming and biodiversity in Scotland. Scottish Badgers welcomes the findings, that broadly demonstrated empirical evidence that badgers have no or non-significant negative impacts on livestock and wildlife.

We have released a statement on our Media Page for further information.
