Despite badgers being a protected species, persecution is rife in Gloucestershire. We need more people to keep an eye on their local setts and report anything suspicious.
Badgers from a sett that one of our members monitors in the Forest of Dean.
If you think a crime has been committed, then call the police.
If you find a sett, then please report it in confidence on the national Badger Trust website, or directly to us with the gps or W3W location to email@example.com
Please also report any problems with footpaths – either to the council or ramblers. org using their app (Pathwatch) or online.
Some setts are easy to spot.
And many are in far from ideal locations.
A Cheltenham sett at risk from encroaching development and one on an old village dump, with broken glass everywhere.
What is being lost from woods and fields across Gloucestershire.
The joyful sight of springtime badger activity.
