Charity Registration No. 259558


September 2019

The Trust has expressed deep concern after it was confirmed an area in Staffordshire has been included in the expansion of the badger cull.

Proposals to extend licensed badger culling in the county have been approved by Natural England. The news comes just a year after it was announced the badger cull was being extended into Staffordshire. Government data showed that 3,979 badgers were killed in the county in 2018.

MAY 2019

Plans are in place for the Trust to vaccinate badgers in June / July 2019. Please donate to our appeal so we can vaccinate as many badgers as possible.

For more info 

Update - December 2018

Almost 4,000 badgers have been killed in Staffordshire.

Please support our appeal so we can vaccinate more 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.
