Charity number: 1075886
Welcome to the Group's web site and our work to improve the protection of badgers, not just in Binfield, but across Berkshire. It is only a simple site, but you will find links to many sites that contain lots of information on badgers, their need for protection and what you can do to help.
Use the buttons on the left hand side to navigate your way around this web site. Please bookmark this page and visit again for updated information on meetings and new Binfield Badger Group newsletters.
See Meetings page for details of our next meeting on 16 October 2014
See the video on the About Us page - this video was produced to highlight the need to protect not just the sett, but the access pathways to foraging areas.
You can see CCTV of the badgers on the "Videos" page.

PLEASE, PLEASE help us to stop the culling of badgers which started on 1 June 2013. The many Government debates and votes in 2012 and 2013 have not put a stop to the cull. The cull will continue in Somerset and Gloucestershire in 2014 and is rumoured to expand in 2015. We need to get as many people as possible to make their views known. Sign the NEW online e-petition set up by Nigel Ross - it is easy to do and will continue to show the Government the public opposition to this pointless cull http://submissions.epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/54685 The one set up by Dr Brian May CBE closed with an incredible 304,002 signatures, but we need to continue to show our opposition to the cull.
Also we want local
Councils in Berkshire to be aware that the public is against
culling, so PLEASE sign this ePetition asking West Berkshire
Council to block culling and support vaccination. It only
takes a few moments to sign the petition on the Council's
web site. Also share this link so that the Council
understands how the public does not want badger culling.
Killing 130,000 badgers will NOT stop the cattle to cattle transfer of bovine TB. Will all the deer be killed next? The millions of pounds of wasted tax payer's money needs to be redirected into vaccine development and approval for use in badgers AND cattle. Have a quick look at the following video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zKwBxUeSfs
Please act quickly to
mass slaughter of one of Britain's most loved mammals.
Follow these links to find out how you can help and how the
Badger Trust has been fighting against the cull.
Please write or email your local MP to object to this cull. This cull is a pilot scheme to eradicate bTB in cattle - which it won't. This cull may be extended to the whole of England. It's imperative that all MPs are lobbied asking them to stop the cull. Please click on this LINK to go to our page on bTB. There is far too much misinformation, hence the need for all of us to state our opinions.
