First badger cub of 2022!

Rescue

The first orphaned badger cub of 2022 has arrived.

Originally rescued by the team at the Norfolk Badger Trust, this little male was still far too young to survive in the wild. Although the Norfolk team were able to care for him for a little while, he was transferred into our care after they became concerned by his condition.

Despite still appearing bright, he was quite dehydrated and was having apparent difficulty toileting. Having quickly placed him on a course of treatment, our vet team were encouraged to see him showing signs of improvement, but he still had a fair way to go...

Rehabilitation

Our adorable badger cub is growing fast, but this is just the start of his long journey back to the wild. It will be a while yet.

Will you help our orphaned wildlife?

Every year, orphan season gets bigger and bigger for us. As human populations grow, so, too, does our impact on the natural world. Last year, we had over 180 different species brought to our centre, and we responded to over 20,000 (yes, twenty thousand!) wildlife emergencies. These young vulnerable wild animals are often just days old when they are brought to us, and they need our care and support for a second chance in the wild. Will you help them?
