Our group's activities include:

  • Promoting wildlife and educating people about badgers and their habitat to help encourage tolerance and appreciation of badgers throughout the community.
  • Surveying and monitoring of badger setts and habitats.
  • The collection and rehabilitation of sick or injured badgers.
  • Visiting people who have problems with badgers in their gardens to give advice.
  • Working with developers when a badgers habitat is threatened by building developments.
  • Working with the Police to investigate criminal activities relating to badgers such as illegal killing, cruelty, destruction of setts and living environment and illegal hunting, baiting, etc.
  • Attending various wildlife events and seminars around Essex to promote our group and its activities and also raise funds.
  • Giving talks to groups about badgers and what we do.


We work closely with the Badger Trust, all of the other local badger groups and wildlife groups as well as local councils and many other related organisations.
