Live in the UK? -- Take Action Today!
New Hope for Badgers?
Urge the new Environment Secretary to abandon the inhumane, ineffective badger cull. Take action now!
Support Badger Patrols in Glos & Somerset
Please show your support for the dedication of the Wounded Badger Patrols in Gloucestershire and Somerset.
With culling set to get underway once again in both counties this summer, these hardworking volunteers need lots of help and support now so they can to continue the great work they did conducting peaceful patrols looking for wounded badgers last autumn.
They're looking for volunteers to contact them now, before the culling begins. Could you spare a few evenings to walk footpaths? Help out with administration & office work? Make a donation? Please contact them direct:
Our director joined a number of Gloucestershire patrols last autumn and you can read more about them on the GABS website.
A number of petitions have been created calling on councils, in both Bovine Tuberculosis High Risk Areas and other parts of England, to prohibit the culling of badgers and promote vaccination.
If your county or town is not listed, keep checking back – we’ll add details of petitions as soon as we receive them. Last updated 17 July.
Please only sign if you live, work or study in the named council and/or district area.
