Badger Mitigation


Penny and Dave Lewns lead this one-day course covering the impacts of different types of development on badgers and the options for mitigation.


The course will focus on practical measures and techniques, including designing and building artificial badger setts and will review the various techniques for excluding badger from setts.

This course is aimed at experienced practitioners (intermediate or advanced level) and is a classroom based course. It is assumed that those attending the mitigation course have attended the ‘Badger Ecology and Survey Techniques’ course, or are already experienced in undertaking badger surveys and have a good understanding of the background ecology of the species.

We are also running this course in South West England (click here for details). 

Who Should Attend?

Consultants, LPA Ecologists, conservation officers in SNCOs or NGOs.
