Gwent Badger Group 

About the group

The Group was founded in 1974 and since then has continued to campaign for, conserve and rescue badgers across the county of Gwent.

Gwent has a healthy population of badgers. They occur mainly in the more rural areas but there are a number of small populations which extend into towns and cities.


We operate in the local authority areas of Caerphilly, Torfaen, Newport, Monmouthshire and Blaenau Gwent. Frequently our assistance is requested in the surrounding districts of Brecon and the Forest of Dean.

Find out more about what we do.

Slow down for badgers

Badgers are frequent road traffic casualties, sadly. The Badger Trust gives advice on how you can help protect them from traffic harm.
