What is Team Badger
Team Badger is a coalition of national, local and grass roots animal and wildlife welfare organisations representing millions of compassionate citizens. We reject the government’s policy of badger culling as unsound, unscientific and unacceptable.
We believe the most effective and legitimate way to oppose the shooting of badgers is through peaceful and legal protest supported by reasoned argument, scientific facts and legal challenge.
We are convinced that the long-term control of tuberculosis in cattle can be achieved by the comprehensive application of a range of measures without resorting to the culling of wildlife.
VACCINATING BADGER NOW
Make badger vaccination a viable option; it can change hearts and minds from within the Government. We must show that a large scale vaccination project is possible, but we need your support to do this.
Please support this project - you can donate anything from as little as £1. If everyone who signed Brian’s petitions donated £3.00, we would reach £1 million right away.
Support BACVI now.

TEAM BADGER CULL DEBATE
THURSDAY 13TH MARCH
House of Common
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP
Team Badger have secured a back bench business debate!
The Independent Evaluation Panel (IEP) says culling badgers is inhumane and ineffective. The conservative think tank, the Bow group (http://www.bowgroup.org/policy/what-next-bovine-tb), says culling badgers is ineffective, costly and unscientific and it tells us to vaccinate as the only option at this moment in time.
We can vaccinate badgers through a volunteer led scheme; Badger and CattleVaccination Initiative (www.bacvi.co.uk). It's really important that you share this post and you ask everybody that is a UK voter to email their MP today.
Tell your MP we can vaccinate, tell them it's the only viable solution that's ready now.
Give them this link, (www.bacvi.co.uk) and tell them to go to the back bench business debate in the House of Commons on the 13th March; it's a full day debate.
No country has successfully tackled TB in cattle through killing wildlife
Vaccination is the only way to tackle TB in any species
Owen Paterson is ignoring Defra's own scientific research
Culling badgers could make the problem of cattle TB worse
Badger culling will not help TB in British cattle
