Welcome to Scottish Badgers

Scottish Badgers brings together individuals and groups from across Scotland to promote the study, conservation and protection of Scotland’s badgers, their setts and natural habitats.  Together, we seek to encourage tolerance and appreciation of badgers by offering information, advice and guidance to all.

Scottish Badgers is the only charity dedicated to the study, conservation and protection of badgers that operates in Scotland. Please note that Scottish Badgers is not affiliated with, or a branch of the Badger Trust. The Badger Trust is not involved in any work protecting badgers in Scotland.
