Learn badger-related legislation and mitigation techniques with our advanced Badgers and Development course. This training helps ecologists understand licensing requirements, identify active setts, and avoid disturbing badgers on development sites.

Ecologists often encounter badgers on development sites, making it crucial to understand the legislation and guidance related to badgers and development. Our advanced Badgers and Development course covers licensing requirements, mitigation techniques, and how to identify active setts. If you’ve wondered when a licence is needed or how to avoid disturbing badgers, this 3-hour 16-minute pre-recorded webinar is for you.
