Oxfordshire Badger Group volunteers provide a 24/7 rescue service and also run our vaccination project. Both teams are dedicated to badger protection. We rely entirely on your donations to fund their activities during 2023. Please donate if you can.
Help keep our rescue team on the road
During 2022, our rescue teams were involved in 18 badger rescues, ranging from road traffic collisions, injuries, orphaned cubs, and badgers trapped in weird places. Our volunteers are on call 24/7 and are often called out in the early hours of the morning. We don't own veterinary or rehabilitation facilities, so most of the money raised will go to equip our rescue volunteers or toward the veterinary treatment and rehab care of the badgers before they are released back into the wild.
What your donation can buy
Help fund our 5th year of badger vaccination
Our badger vaccination project is run purely by volunteers who give up their time to help Oxfordshire’s badgers. By vaccinating badgers against bovine Tb (bTB), we offer farmers and landowners a safe, effective, and humane alternative to culling.
We are a fully equipped and trained group, but we need to raise funds to buy consumables for vaccination.
What your donation can buy:
- £10 – a box of 100 disposable gloves
- £20 – a pack of 10 FFP3 masks
- £36 – 1 dose of vaccine
- £50 – 25kg sack of peanuts
- £10 – roll of wire and string for badger traps
What our landowners and volunteers say
"Being selected as a vaccination site felt like winning the lottery !"
"I’m super impressed by your professionalism and all the volunteers’ dedication."
"I had the privilege of my first sighting of live Badgers and to see them vaccinated. Then, best of all, to watch them zoom away back through the undergrowth and into their setts, bouncing, free and protected against Bovine TB".
