The aim of the North East Essex Badger Group is to promote the well-being of all badgers in this part of the county, and protect them from persecution or criminal acts
We do this by regularly monitoring all known badger setts in the area, by responding to calls to the Hotline and upholding the legislation of the Protection of Badgers Act 1992.
WE WILL BE TAKING OUR STALL TO VARIOUS EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, PROMOTING OUR GROUP AND THE PLIGHT OF BADGERS BOTH LOCALLY AND NATIONALLY.
THESE EVENTS ALSO HELP TO RAISE MUCH NEEDED FUNDS AND BOOST MEMBERSHIP. COME AND MEET US AT THESE PLACES!!
