Vaccination and how you can help

Along with several other Wildlife Trusts around England, we are proposing to implement a five-year programme of badger vaccination on selected sites in Derbyshire.

 

We will:

• Identify and survey setts to be vaccinated
• Train and certify two vaccinators
• Obtain the relevant caging and trapping licence from Natural England
• Acquire vaccine via prescription from a vet
• Accustom setts to the presence of baited traps
• Trap, vaccinate, mark and release badgers
• Repeat this annually

The annual costs of this work will be £10,000

£5 will buy one dose of vaccine
£25 will buy needles and syringes
£50 will buy two sacks of peanuts for bait
£100 will buy one badger trap
£750 will pay for training for two vaccinators

We have raised over £54,000 for the project so far and your donation will allow us to do more for the badgers of Derbyshire.
