Welcome To The Website
This is the new website for The New Forest Badger Group.
Founded in 1965, the group monitors an extensive number of Badger Setts across 144 acres of The New Forest National Park. Year by year the group have recorded in detail the seasonal activities and changes of a number of selected Setts.
With the help of Forestry England (previously The Forestry Commission), the New Forest Badger Group have been able to assess the successes and failures of Badger Setts as they compete with the ever increasing pressures of a popular tourist destination. The New Forest is still a wild place and continues to support a healthy population of Badgers.
