Badger Badger
Fauna Forest Ecology Ltd can survey for badgers and active setts and produce necessary reports as part of a Preliminary Ecological Appraisal.
We can advise on suitable measures of compensation or mitigation for development licence applications, in order to for your development project to lawfully proceed and meet all legal obligations.

Badgers are protected by law. It is an offence to:..

  • Wilfully take or kill a badger
  • Injure or ill-treat a badger
  • Obstruct a badger sett
  • Damage any part of a badger sett
  • Injure a badger within the sett
  • Disturb animals within a sett
Badgers are protected under the Badgers Act 1992 and Schedule 6 of the Wildlife and Contryside Act 1981 (as amended). A licence is required if badgers or their setts are likely to be disturbed, prior to any work or development commencing.
