Who we are

Somerset Against the Badger Cull (SABC) is a group of individuals united in one aim — to oppose the indefensible, unscientific and inhumane badger culls currently taking place in West Somerset.Who we are

We do this through a combination of peaceful protest and monitoring of the cull whilst it takes place, and also by challenging the political spin that drives the cull with reasoned scientific and moral argument. We have a commitment to continue pressuring the cull policy makers and to keep events in the public eye at all times.

Amongst our numbers we have ecologists, and conservationists with a wealth of wildlife experience. But we are also gardeners and housewives, retired servicemen and business owners, environmental and animal activists, factory workers, students and medics of all ages. Our strength lies in our diversity, passion and inclusivity. We are a grass roots organisation but we are also recognised by and work with a large number of prominent animal welfare and conservation organisations.

In 2013 and 2014 our work and direct action in the cull zone played a major part in limiting the immediate expansive plans for the cull and undoubtedly saved the lives of badgers. From 1 June 2015 the badger culls could continue in Somerset. Join or support us in putting a stop to the killing of our native wildlife.
