Report the Location

If you are stationary at the location of your sighting of a sett or a live or dead badger etc, mobile phone map applications - GPS references and also e.g www.streetmap.co.uk are of course very useful if you are able to receive a signal. Allow the application or website to access/share your location, store this as a favourite on your device, this can then be emailed directly to the badger group along with other information describing the location. Alternatively describe the location as accurately as possible.
If you are driving in a rural location and it is either unsafe and/or inconvenient to stop but you have seen a dead badger at the side of the road, for example, report the sighting, making a note of the road name and/or A or B number of the road, the direction you are travelling in and a description of the location of the badger in relation to a landmark or place.
