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.

Special Talk by Patrick Barkham

For our groups AGM this year we are delighted to announce that our special guest speaker will be Patrick Barkham, the natural history writer for the Guardian newspaper.

He is the author of many books which include:
The Butterfly Isles: A Summer in Search of Our Emperors and Admirals, Badgerlands: The Twilight World of Britain's Most Enigmatic Animal and Coastlines: The Story of Our Shore.

The talk will start at 8pm on the 2nd November at the Hockley Community Centre, Westminster Drive, Hockley, SS5 4XD.

The talk will be open to both members and non-members. Admission is free although any donations to the group will be greatly appreciated. We will also be having a prize raffle on the night.

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.
