Dates announced for Scottish Badger Week 2018

The Trust and the charity Scottish Badgers are pleased to announce Scottish Badger Week 2018. This week will run from Saturday 5 to Sunday 13 May and will include events, fundraising activities and a media campaign.

Our aim is to celebrate and raise awareness of this iconic species and the threats they face, including illegal persecution and road deaths. This year we are hoping to involve a range of organisation in this event to help ensure there are lots of ways to get involved around Scotland.

Host an event

In 2018 we are hoping to increase the geographical spread of activity and so, for the first time, we are calling on groups including ranger services and conservation organisations across Scotland to get involved by hosting their own Scottish Badger Week events.

Events could include:

  • Talk on badgers (speakers may be available).
  • ‘Tracks, trails & signs’ walk
  • Badger sett survey on your reserve
  • Badger watch
  • Trail camera session at a sett
  • Sett checks on your reserve
  • Junior tracking club

With help from other organisations we can achieve a much bigger impact and promote the conservation of badgers, their setts and natural habitats much further. We can help you publicise your event by providing a branded poster template, a separate event listing on our website, and through our social media channels.

We will be launching our events guide at the beginning of April. If you would like to be on board to run an event as part of Scottish Badger Week, please send the following  to projectofficer@scottishbadgers.org.uk by Friday 23 March.
