Members welcome !
Oxfordshire Badger Group is run for and by our members. As a membership group the more members we have the better - it provides much needed income and helps raise the Group's profile and credibility in speaking up for badgers.
Members receive a copy of our annual report and access to all our field work protocols. You'll receive regular updates and have the opportunity to take part in our voluntary work. We try to organise at least one badger watching session per year and offer relevant fieldwork training.
We hope members will play an active part in the groups activities. Expect to get invitations to help out with fund / awareness raising, sett survey walks, field
work, 'office work', signing petitions, lobbying decision makers ... there is work for everyone though if you just want be kept informed that's not a problem.
Oxford is a large county so we are forming local member 'hubs' to look out for badgers in their area. One thing everyone can do is report any badger sightings. This includes road kill, since where badgers are being killed on our roads there must be a live sett in the area. If you know of any setts in your area then keep an eye on them and report any issues.
Membership is a must for volunteers who work in the field and/or represent Oxfordshire Badger Group. We keep the fee as low as possible. We pass £2 of the annual fee to the Badger Trust. Much of the remainder goes to operating costs such as OBG's membership of The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) and our public liability insurance.
Standard Membership: £12 per household per year (renews 12 monthly).
Donations are always very welcome.
Concessionary Membership is £6 per household annually . You (and members of your household) will be eligible for concessionary membership if:
If that's you, and you’re keen to get your OBG boots on, just email us - concessionary membership is not yet available online.
We will keep you up to date with badger news, information and invitations to our events.
