  • The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country welcomes the extra time to implement a lasting solution to the issue of Bovine Tuberculosis (BTb) due to the postponement of the cull.

  • The Wildlife Trust wrote to Members of Parliament asking them to oppose a licensed badger cull in England last year. For over 15 years the Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country has been raising concerns about badger culling, and urging proper investment in alternatives such as vaccination, better biosecurity and accurate testing procedures. These are the most effective means to tackle bovine TB and the best options for badgers and for UK farmers.
