Badger Surveys

Badgers and their setts are protected under:

  • The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended).
  • The Protection of Badgers Act 1992 (as amended).

The legislation makes it illegal to deliberately or recklessly kill, harm or take a badger from the wild. It is also an offence to deliberately or recklessly destroy, damage, disturb or enter a badger sett.

Badgers are dynamic creatures, who are prolific at sett building, but may be hard to spot on your Site. Our trained ecologists can survey your site to determine likely presence or absence of badgers, inform design requirements and support you through any licensing or method statement process.

Get in touch to discuss your survey requirements with our specialist ecologists.
