Kirklees Badger Protection Group



Welcome to the Kirklees Badger Protection Group website. Our main aim is to monitor, study and protect badgers in the Kirklees area of West Yorkshire. We also aim to educate and inform the general public about badgers, and provide a service to the community in advising both the public, police, planners and local authority generally on badger issues.

We are a small but dedicated and friendly group, who meet four or five times a year, but who are always to be found in the woods and hillsides of Kirklees monitoring setts and looking after the interests and habitat of our badgers.

The Group was formed in 1988 and is a registered charity. We are affiliated to the Badger Trust, which is the national organisation relating to the study and protection of badgers.

If you would like to know more about the group or what we do, or to let us know about anything relating to badgers in Kirklees, there's more about us on the 'About us' page [link] or you can contact us by phone or email [links to contact page]. We'd be very happy to hear from you.
