Badgers and their sets are protected under:
- The Protection of Badgers Act 1992 (as amended)
When do I need to get in touch?
Badgers are secretive and it is possible to be unaware of their presence on a site. If you suspect badgers are present or are unsure if you require a badger survey or badger protection simply get in touch.
Alternatively, a site’s potential to support badgers is usually identified within a Preliminary Ecological Appraisal / Phase 1 Survey.
