Nic, I have a question about badgers you might be able to answer. I know that hedgehogs are badger prey, they’re in decline and badgers are being culled, but I also know that they’re not being culled for conservation purposes, and the cull has been shown to be ineffective at reducing bovine TB and to be damaging ecosystems. Stopping the harm that’s being caused by the cull would be a good thing at least for most of the ecosystem, but is there a chance it could make things worse for hedgehogs? Or can this feasibly be sufficiently mitigated with rewilding?
