The East Yorkshire Badger Protection Group was founded in 1987.
We cover the area from Filey down to Spurn and from Malton, east of York down to Goole,
including the Selby District but we will cross boundaries – after all, badgers do!
To survey, record and monitor badger setts in order to protect badgers.
Sett interference can be deliberate ( a crime) or due to a lack of awareness.
Your donations and membership fees provide us the funds required to purchase
vital equipment, cameras and rescue equipment, thank you.
We can help with advising landowners and householders on matters
relating to badgers and we will provide educational 'talks'.
We assist the police and the RSPCA in their efforts at upholding the law,
badgers are protected under the Protection of Badgers Act 1992.
An interest in the protection of badgers is all that is required.
Some members regularly monitor badger setts while others simply provide
more 'eyes on setts' when out and about. All are welcome, our badgers really do need help.
Keep dogs on a leash in the vicinity of badger setts or animal burrows.
For deceased badgers inform your Local Council and Badger Trust.
Our sett recording system is undergoing an upgrade, please email us details of any setts you know of,
area, a brief description, GPS location or What3Words, landowner if known. Many thanks for your help.
