This involves surveying for badger activity and vaccinating badgers with BCG once a year.

Bait marking surveys can be used to establish badger social group territories, which can be useful when surveying for planning purposes or providing farmers with bio-security guidance. We offer a range of surveys to suit all needs.

Project Management

Badger Ecology Wales is able to project manage both small and large projects for clients. We project managed the largest private sett survey in Wales covering over 280 farms, on 185 square kilometres of the Gower Peninsula. This work was successfully carried out on behalf of the Gower Vaccination Group LTD in 2017 and then followed up with a vaccination project in 2019.

Badger Vaccination

It is common knowledge that the Eurasian Badger is a significant wildlife reservoir for Bovine TB (Mycobacterium bovis) in the UK. We currently work with farms in Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire to provide a vaccination program as part of a package of biosecurity measures, which can help to reduce the risk of Bovine TB spreading between badgers and cattle.

Artificial Sett Construction & Sett Closure

Badger Ecology Wales are experts in badger artificial sett construction and sett closure. Badgers and their setts are protected by the law which means it is illegal to kill, injure or take a badger. If a badger sett is near or on an area that requires development, a site survey is needed to plan for the potential movement or relocation of the badgers, under licence. Badger Ecology Wales LTD are able to survey the site, discuss your requirements and submit an application with you for the closure of any badger setts if required.
