Get Sett Scotland! is a nationwide programme delivering comprehensive citizen science and community engagement, for the benefit of both badgers and people.

 The charities Scottish Wildlife Trust and Scottish Badgers have partnered up as part of a 3-year Heritage Lottery funded project with the aim to create a nation of badger champions across Scotland.

The Project is committed to being truly inclusive.

We want people of all background and abilities to have opportunities to protect and champion badgers. A dedicated inclusion officer works alongside the project manager to engage with groups of young people, asylum seekers and people facing barriers to employment or volunteering as part of the ‘Get Sett Scotland!’ partnership initiative.

Get involved

We are keen to work with a wide range of people with protected characteristics including minority ethnic groups, LGBTQ+ groups and people with disabilities. We provide support to those that need it and offer dedicated sessions on wildlife surveying, use of trail cameras, practical conservation, bushcraft, wildlife crime awareness, wild wellbeing and more.

Learn more about badgers

One of Scotland’s most charismatic mammals, the badger is a member of the mustelid family (the same group as stoats, weasels and otters). An unmistakable animal, badgers are large and grey, with a short fluffy tail, black belly and paws and the familiar black and white-striped face.
