East Yorkshire Badger Protection Group (EYBPG)

Our Group

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!

Our Aims

  • Survey East Yorkshire for setts to
  • Record and Monitor our setts regularly, and to
  • Protect them against destruction by unlawful disturbance,
    either by unsuitable development or by attacks from baiters and diggers

Badger Information

Membership and donations provides funds enabling the group
to purchase motion cameras and rescue equipment. This together with
' feet on the ground' helps us to implement our aims.

We support the Badger Trust who campaign on sound science against the cull.
Please visit The Wildlife Trust website.

We also offer advice to landowners and householders on matters relating to badgers,
and offer practical help when problems occur.

  • To carry out surveys to determine whether badgers are present on land
  • To provide an educational service through talks
  • To assist the police and the RSPCA in enforcing the law

We welcome members of all ages who would like to be involved in the welfare and protection of badgers,
particularly anyone willing to monitor setts in their local area and elsewhere.
