Story

Update - December 2018

Almost 4,000 badgers have been killed in Staffordshire.  https://bit.ly/2T0RWPB

Please support our appeal so we can vaccinate more badgers.

HELP SAVE OUR BADGERS

The Trust believes that vaccination of badgers against bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is currently the most effective way of reducing the risk of badger to cattle transmission of the disease. 

It will cost £25,000 to run the vaccination programme for the next five years. We need your help to fund this important work - to pay for essential veterinary supplies, equipment and staff training.

Please give as much as you can afford.

£10 - buys enough peanuts to bait one trap for two weeks

£20 - buys a dose of the vaccine and a syringe

£50 - buys personal protective equipment to keep a vaccinator working effectively and safely

£100 - buys one badger cage trap

£350 buys an annual FERA certificate of competence for one vaccinator - a legal requirement for the work

£750 - buys professional training for a staff member to safely handle and capture badgers and deliver the programme

Thank you for your contribution to this appeal.
