Ben Fogle meets Derbyshire badgers

Have your say

TV presenter Ben Fogle and ITV Countrywise visited Edale to film a badger vaccination programme.

Badgers in the county are getting vaccinated against bovine tuberculosis.

Tim Birch, Head of Advocacy and Conservation Strategy in Derbyshire, said: “It was great working with ITV’s Countrywise team. They remarked on what a fantastic experience it was to witness a badger vaccination first hand and didn’t mind the 4.30am start. And Ben Fogle was really impressed with

our work.”

The Derbyshire Countrywise episode will be screened in the Autumn.

Derbyshire Wildlife Trust’s Badger Vaccination Programme is considered one of the most successful models in the country.
