Although one of the UK’s most recognisable species and highly protected in law, the badger is under threat. Over 210,000 badgers have already been killed in the government’s unwarranted BovineTb cull.  More are killed in road accidents and their setts destroyed by developers and on shooting estates. And of course these beautiful animals are still being deliberately persecuted by badger baiters.

At Protect the Wild we are campaigning against the on-going cull and supporting key groups dedicated to the protection and survival of wild badgers.

By adopting a badger with Protect the Wild you will help fund our efforts to protect badgers and help expose wildlife crimes committed against wild badger populations. 

As an adopter, not only will you be helping fund vital work, but you will also receive an exclusive Protect the Wild adoption pack including cuddly toy, glossy photo, and an information fact sheet.  As an adopter we will keep you up to date by email on our latest campaigns and the important impact we’re having to safeguard wild badgers.

How your adoption

Will help

Your adoption will provide vital funds as we campaign to end the destruction and persecution of badgers. 


  • Funding undercover investigations to expose the realities of the badger cull.
