Looks like this Saturday, that is to say 21 February is going to be a busy day, the Badger Trust have an event in Birmingham where

Wildlife crime, cruel sports and unscientific wildlife culls will be top of the agenda at the second Birmingham Wildlife Festival and Badger March, which expects to greet more than 2000 people on Saturday 21st February.

A day of entertainment and field-craft workshops will also feature speeches from conservationist and comedian Bill Oddie OBE and key wildlife groups. A peaceful anti-badger cull protest march, the second to be held in Birmingham and the 28th ‘Badger Army’ protest against the government’s badger culling policy, will form part of the event.  For more detail click on the link above.
