Meles meles

Red List Category: Least Concern.
Major Threats : In central Europe the population was formerly severely reduced by rabies, but that threat has now decreased with rabies controls. In the UK the species is associated with bovine TB, which is used as an excuse to eradicate the species. During hunting for foxes or raccoons the badger is often killed as bycatch. In the Russian Federation the species is sometimes hunted for its meat and fat which is used as a medicine. The species is sensitive to habitat fragmentation and the size of the remaining patch is important for the continued survival of the species.
Conservation Actions: It is listed on Appendix III of the Bern Convention. It is also listed on Schedule 6 of the United Kingdom Wildlife and Countryside Act and listed under the Protection of Badgers Act. In Albania it is considered Endangered. The species is found in many protected areas.
