A collaboration between Badger Trust and Binfield Badger Group with teacher notes and KS1 and KS2 pupil worksheets

Helping to educate the next generation of badger protectors

Our educational film is a great place for your cubs to start learning about badgers.

Packed with real-life footage of badgers and clear, bright infographics, this 12-minute film is narrated by zoologist and wildlife presenter Billy Heaney.


It's mainly suitable for primary school-aged cubs, but you've told us it's a great watch for anyone who wants to learn more about these secretive native animals!

Visit the Education hub for more FREE educational resources and fun activities for KS1, KS2 and KS3 learners.

The badger cull is far from over

The scale of the badger cull is immense and it's far from over, with years more culling to go. 

  • Another 5 years of intensive culling scheduled

  • 140,000 MORE badgers estimated to be killed

  • Failure to focus on cattle: over 94% of bTB infections are cow-to-cow

You can take action – get your free #CanTheCull action pack with a postcard to send to your MP and a facts leaflet to bust the myths around the cull.
