Forest operations and badger setts

Practice Guide 009 on safeguarding setts and badgers within setts.

Year of Publication1995

This guide concentrates upon safeguarding setts and badgers within setts. It is not intended to provide comprehensive advice on the wider aspects of managing forests for the benefit of badgers although it includes some measures which go beyond what is strictly necessary to avoid an offence under the 1992 Act, in order to minimise disturbance to badgers beyond the immediate vicinity of the sett.
