use by badger groups and other people who work in teaching and learning environments. It will take
students through a detailed understanding of the badger.
It will give detailed evidence of how to discover its presence It will
also go through how to conduct professional bait marking surveys for badgers.

The Teaching Materials Kit is a mixture of computer files (*) and
physical paper/card/plastic items. You need to open these files on a
computer. We supply them on a USB flash memory
stick (also known as a pen drive). The pen drive has enough free
space so you can add your own materials to the drive.
You can run all the presentations, videos and documents directly
from the USB stick; so you can do talks where access to web-sites
may be very slow. The full kit includes these items:
Pocket Measuring Guide - useful to measure the size of
footprints when you are out in the field
Sample packs of coloured bait-marking
pellets (two different colours)
Finding a Badger Sett and other videos *
More than a dozen badger sounds *
More than 20 extra documents which explain all about the
badger and how it lives around us *
These presentations are supplied in Microsoft PowerPoint
2003 and 2010 formats. It is possible to read these files in other versions of
Microsoft PowerPoint; as well as "free" or open-source software, such as Open
Office impress. These presentations are also supplied in Adobe
Acrobat PDF format. You can read these using the free Acrobat
Reader application on your computer or by using the free Acrobat
PDF app on your Android phone.
The memory stick includes an interactive menu, so you can pick and choose which of
the presentations, videos, sounds or documents you choose to
The USB memory stick will have a capacity of 8GBytes or
