We've put together a short video about the 2023 rescues so far. 2023 started off very busy for our rescue teams, with a number of badgers being involved in road traffic collisions.
We have had a number of badgers that despite their injuries have made a full recovery and released back into the wild.
We would all like to thank those members of the rescue teams that attend call outs together with the great work of the vets and rehab teams at Tiggywinkles, Nutkin Ward and Oxfordshire Wildlife Rescue.
It's been a very busy year, with the number of rescues up to 14 so far. Amongst the sadness, we've had some amazing success stories. This is a long blog that summarises rescue activity so far this year ...... so make yourself comfortable and grab the peanuts ... & LETS GO!
I'm part of Oxfordshire Badger Group volunteer rescue service and help to capture and transport injured or orphaned badgers to a wildlife rescue. In January, I was one of five Members of Oxfordshire Badger Group to participate in an online seminar provided by Secret World Wildlife Rescue (SWWR). Pauline Kidner and Liz Mullineaux delivered this and in such experienced and knowledgeable hands our four hours training flew by.
