It is an unfortunate fact of life that badgers need help and protection. Without our efforts in looking after the welfare of badgers in Surrey and our support of the Badger Trust with problems throughout the country, there would be little co-ordinated defence of badgers. For our voice to be effective, it is important that as many people as possible become members of the East Surrey Badger Protection Society and maintain that membership. Our Officers are involved in rescuing sick, injured and trapped badgers, in planning discussions and talking to decision makers. They need to know that they have the backing of a significant part of our community.
Subscriptions and more importantly donations pay vets and finance our organisation, release programme, necessary equipment etc.
