Here you can find the details and maps of specific sites which should be monitored for illegal wildlife persecution. Many snare and trap sites are positioned near active badger territory. Please note this list is not exhaustive and is subject to change – it is vital people keep checking and reporting their findings. Badgers, mountain hares and other wildlife are highly vulnerable.
