I’m excited and proud to say that my badger vaccination feature is the cover story of the Autumn 2011 issue of BBC Wildlife Magazine. The portfolio was shot in Gloucestershire in the UK while working alongside the magazine’s environment editor James Fair.

The feature looks at 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). You can see a gallery of the shots on the magazine’s website and see more of the portfolio on my website in the Stories section.
