Badger Sett Surveying – Vaccination Field Training
Oxfordshire Badger Group is running this event for members keen to help with badger sett surveying or to take part in our badger vaccination scheme which starts later in the year.
This field training afternoon will be held in the beautiful Wytham Woods research centre on the outskirts of Oxford. One of the Wytham Woods team will give a short talk on the badgers who live in the setts we’ll be visiting. Oxfordshire Badger Group will talk about our badger vaccination programme and explain how volunteers can help.
The event is suitable for both experienced and new badger field workers. Attendees will become confident in identifying active badger setts and keeping accurate sett survey records to the standard needed for badger vaccination work.
We are very grateful to the Conservator of Wytham Woods and Oxford University for letting us ‘go off the path’ to explore two badger setts and for the use of the Sawmill and cloakroom facilities.
This event is for ‘Oxfordshire Badger Group members only’ and attendance must be pre-booked. For more information on how to join and to register your place please email us.
