Cull Zones

Summer 2017: The cull was extended to four new zones in Devon & Cornwall in 2016. This year, the government want to continue the roll-out across the south west, and several new zones in Devon & Cornwall are likely to begin culling. If you live anywhere in or near to a red shaded area on the map below, your badgers are likely to be in the firing line this year. If you want to get involved, or have information that might be of use to us, please get in touch.
