Badgers are widely distributed throughout the UK, receiving protection under UK legislation but with no Priority Species listing on the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP).

Occupying a wide range of rural and urban habitats throughout the UK, particularly in the lowlands and the south and south-west, Badgers are generally territorial (less so in urban areas) and inhabit underground burrows called setts.
