Badger Edge Vaccination Scheme 2019 Review

This report reflects on the 2019 badger vaccination season, what it means for badgers and wildlife groups both locally and nationally and what the future for badgers looks like.

2019 was a big year for Derbyshire’s badgers. Not only was it the sixth year of badger vaccination across the county, it was also a year that saw the badger cull postponed in this region until May 2020. Thanks to a ground swell of support, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Theresa Villiers, prevented the cull from coming to Derbyshire. Please see more detail in the report attached below.
