Debbie Bailey will be joining us to talk about badger vaccination. Badger vaccination can reduce the number of badgers testing positive for the disease and we believe that due to recent government policy changes and a move to greater culling in Low Risk areas such as ours (Cumbria and Lincolnshire), this may be an important discussion to have.
Debbie is the lead coordinator for the Derbyshire Badger Vaccination project, which is run as a partnership between The Derbyshire Wildlife Trust and National Trust and receives a BEVS2 grant from DEFRA. In 2013, she took a sabbatical from a sixteen-year nursing career to qualify as a lay vaccinator and establish the volunteer-based project, which continues to grow under her leadership. Debbie is a Director of the Badger Trust and a committee member of her local Badger Group. She provides expert witness statements relating to badger-baiting incidents and rehabilitates injured badgers and cubs. In 2018 she won an IFAW National award in recognition of her work.
Following this, members will be able to take part in the business of our A.G.M. at 8.30pm.
