Due to the current cull in the West Country, badgers REALLY need our help. Please donate whatever you can via Paypal.

For NON URGENT matters, please call in daytime hours.

If the volunteer is unable to respond to your call immediately, please leave a message on the voicemail and your call will be returned as soon as possible.

Ring the Hotline 07751 572175 if you have found a sick or injured badger. Or visit the Advice page for general advice. Despite being fascinating adorable creatures, badgers often make an appearance in the most irritating places and cause problems to humans. Again, we will try to help.


stallbikesFundraising and Awareness

Any pet owner will know that vet bills can be very expensive and as we often treat sick or injured badgers, fundraising is a necessity. 

In spite of the Protection of Badgers Act 1992, the general public are often unaware that badgers are still persecuted both legally and illegally.  One of the aims of our group is to raise awareness of their plight.

badgerhideBadger Watching

The North East Essex Badger Group has badger watching facilities in woodland between Sible Hedingham and Gosfield. This facility is available free of charge to NEEBG members and to the general public for a small fee.


Education is an important part of our work and we are happy to give an illustrated talk to anyone who will listen! We do ask for a donation but please ring to find out about concessions for childrens groups.
