Badger Trust News

21st February 2014


We are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Dominic Dyer as Chief Executive Officer for Badger Trust.

Dominic will take up the role on March 3rd. Many of you will have seen Dominic at our last Badger Trust conference in Derbyshire or on one of the various marches throughout the country. Over the last year, he has become one of the leading opponents of the badger cull. Dominic says: “It’s a huge honour to become the CEO of the Badger Trust at such a critical time. For too long badgers have been exploited, abused and killed and I look forward to leading the Badger Trust and working with its thousands of supporters across the country. The ultimate aim is to help find a long- term solution to reducing bovine TB, which is good for farmers but also provides these wonderful animals with the long- term protection which they truly deserve.”

Dominic is immensely knowledgeable and has proved himself a powerful advocate for all wildlife, we’re delighted to have him on board. We are pleased that Dominic will be able to continue with his role as policy advisor for Care for the Wild, his excellent work on subjects such as international wildlife crime, will sit alongside his work for us.

There have been many endorsements for the appointment

Chris Packham said: “Dominic is a great champion, orator and naturalist.

Simon King, said “With Dominic’s experience and knowledge I truly hope the Government and the NFU will engage with the Badger Trust and other conservation organisations to help farmers tackle bovine TB without resorting to killing our native wildlife”

Bill Oddie: “Dominic Dyer is the man you want speaking on your side. Especially if you are a badger.”

Conservative MP Zac Goldsmith: “His campaign against the cull has been passionate, methodical and relentless, and that vigour is more important now than ever.”

Huw Irranca Davies MP (Shadow Environment Minister): “Dominic has been a consistent and powerful voice for evidence-based policy, supporting vaccination as an alternative to the government’s failed badger culls.”

Natalie Bennett leader of the Green Party: “Dominic is a powerful advocate for wildlife and has worked tirelessly in the campaign against the badger cull and I look forward to working with him in his new role.”

Former Defra-advisor and scientist Dr Chris Cheesman: “The Badger Trust is an organisation with a pivotal role in facing this threat and it is welcome news indeed that Dominic will be taking the helm to help re-establish a sustainable, truly science led policy to tackle bovine TB.”

Dave Purser, Cotswold farmer: “Dominic's expertise in wildlife and conservation issues coupled with a career background in government and agriculture makes him an ideal champion, not only for the badger but also for badger-friendly farmers like ourselves. Dominic's skill at public speaking is well known, so woe betide proponents of the badger cull when faced with future public debates with him on the subject - a prospect we savour.”
