Data Search for Consultants
Desk Study Service for Data Searches
For nearly twenty years Scottish Badgers has been collating badger records and we currently hold over 13,000 records of road kills and in excess of 9,200 other records relating to setts and live sightings from around Scotland. Although this information is highly sensitive and therefore is not widely disseminated we do provide a data search service where, after vetting, this information can be passed on to interested parties who have an appropriate need to know about the presence of badgers in a particular area.
Applicants should be aware that there is a basic £100 administration fee chargeable whether data is found or not. This would cover a search of a single national grid square plus a 1 kilometre buffer around that square. A search with a 2 kilometre buffer would be £200 and one with a 3 kilometre buffer £300. We can carry out larger data searches and are happy to quote a fee for doing so on a case by case basis.

We offer a wide range of training opportunities, from general badger awareness courses for beginners to tailored courses for professionals.
Developing a skilled network of volunteers and professionals is very much at the heart of our work. Our Registered Badger Worker Training Scheme is designed to equip amateur enthusiasts and professional ecologists with the knowledge and skills required to address a wide range of badger issues.
Level One Registered Badger Worker Course
The starting point is our Level One training scheme, which has now trained over sixty people from across Scotland in basic badger awareness and field survey techniques.
The course runs over two days with half a day theory and the remainder practical training in the field. Thereafter regular outings with an experienced surveyor will ensure that you are well prepared for the assessment. It usually takes a year to qualify and the course costs £120.00 for non-members, which includes one year's membership. Pre-existing members pay £100.00.
