Story

Did you know that a large area of the South Downs between Brighton and Eastbourne is a bovine TB High Risk Area? It is possible that the Government could sanction culling of badgers here in an official effort to control the disease.

We strongly believe that killing badgers is not the answer.

We want to vaccinate all the badgers on our nature reserves in the high risk area, and adjoining land where possible. We’ll never allow badger culling on our nature reserves, but vaccination may help control the spread of the disease, and that’s vital if we’re to continue to manage our nature reserves effectively. 

The bovine TB High Risk Area in Sussex is isolated. Any control programme must be done alongside a whole raft of other measures. That’s why we’re asking for your help to fund the entire package on our nature reserves in the high risk area. Badger vaccination will be at the forefront of the plan supported by better management of our own livestock. All this is really expensive but has to be done to make a difference.

We’re asking you for your generous support to help us make this happen.
