Tying in with this week’s controversial announcement by the Government that Badger culling trials are to commence in England in 2012, my photographs of badger bTB vaccination trials are now available online through NHPA and Photoshot. Search on either site for ‘badger vaccination’ to find the images available or  contact me directly.

The shots were taken as part of a BBC Wildlife Magazine cover story tackling the ‘cull versus cure’ issue back in the autumn. The feature looked into the Badger Vaccine Deployment Project being undertaken by Fera as a trial to understand the viability of vaccinating badgers (instead of or alongside the proposed cull) to protect cattle from bovine tuberculosis (bTB). An edit of this portfolio can be seen on my website and on the magazine’s website discoverwildlife.com.
