Badger Protection Group Volunteers

North East Hampshire Badger Group has been formed to protect badgers across as much of Hampshire as possible, starting in the Hart, Rushmoor and East Hampshire areas and to spread awareness about badgers to adults and children alike. We know there are many people out there who treasure and love our wildlife and are passionate about protecting it. We aim to provide a framework to bring such people together and enable them to act effectively to help our precious badgers whilst having fun with like-minded people along the way. 

What we do

  • Sett surveying - underlying much of our work. We can only help badgers if we know where they are living.
  • Help and protect badgers - from illegal activity, anti-social behaviour, road traffic and developments. 
  • Raising awareness - giving badgers a voice. The ongoing badger cull is a case in point. 
  • Newsletter - we will produce a quarterly newsletter updating our members on local and national badger news.
  • Group meetings - we aim to offer group meetings, access to webinars and updates on our activities on a regular basis. 

How you can help

The Group is entirely run by volunteers and we would be really keen to have more people join us. You can help Hampshire's badgers in many ways whether you want to be out in the field, helping with the Group's admin and social media or writing at your desk. If you want to survey setts, on your own or as part of a Group, and submit data to us, we'll show you how!


No special skills needed - just a love of wildlife and a willingness to get involved.
