We provide training courses.
We conduct scientific research.
For planning and development…..
We do surveys, reports, impact licences and mitigation.
We assess the potential for a site to support badgers.
We conduct follow up surveys:
• Walkover surveys for presence/likely absence.
• Mapping of field signs.
• Camera ‘trap’ surveys.
• Dusk/dawn vigils (to count numbers of individuals).
• Bait-marking surveys to establish territories and foraging activity.
Mitigation may include fences to make a site secure against badgers, habitat enhancements, licensed sett closure, providing highway underpasses or even artificial setts.
