Operation Brockwatch is a joint initiative by the Northern Ireland Badger Group and the USPCA to monitor and protect vulnerable badger setts in Northern Ireland.

Operation Brockwatch

The badger group and the USPCA are working in partnership with land owners to install CCTV cameras at vulnerable setts. These setts are monitored 24/7 for suspicious activity. To date, none of the setts under surveillance has been interfered with.


Please contact us if you are a landowner concerned about setts on your land.
