Welcome to the Essex Badger Protection Group

The Essex Badger Protection Group is made up of a group of voluntary members throughout Essex whose common interest is the protection of badgers.

We work in close co-operation with the local police and carry out regular patrols to monitor badger setts.

Other activities include conducting area surveys of the badgers' habitat when threatened by highway and building projects, the rehabilitation of sick and injured badgers and giving advice regarding badgers in gardens.

Help Us Give Badgers a Brake

The Badger Trust launched its new “Give Badgers a Brake” campaign during National Badger Week to raise awareness of the dangers that badgers face on our roads”.

Every year an alarming 50,000 badgers are killed on roads in the UK. As our road network becomes bigger and busier, the risk to badgers and other wildlife becomes greater. This campaign not only raises awareness of this problem but also provides advice on what can be done to help make our roads safer for all wildlife.

Together with the Badger Trust, our Groups Patron, Mike Dilger, has helped produce a video which highlights the dangers badgers face on our roads and show what can be done to try and protect them from this increasing danger.
