Other ways to help

Badgers matter - what you can do


1. Contact your MP

Write to, email or tweet your local MP, urging them to put pressure on the Government to fing new sources of vaccine and drop the cull. We've created a template letter for you to use but local, personalised contact works best.

2. Experience the magic of seeing a badger

Celebrate these wonderful creatures by setting up a night-watch on a sett and be enchanted by badgers merrily going about their business. Find out if there's a badger watching event near you.


3. Email your MEP about the EU cattle vaccine ban

Ask your MEP to press for the EU ban on a cattle vaccine to be lifted.
Find the details of your MEP. A cattle vaccine is the long term solution to the bTB problem, but EU rules currently prevent it from being tested and used in this country - find out why.

The Badger Trust website also has lots of information on the badger cull and links to local badger groups around the UK.
