ABSTRACT
The article reports on the badger population surveys conducted by the British Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) in 2006. The studies found a steady increase in populations in the areas of England worst-affected by bovine tuberculosis. The largest increase in badger numbers was in Gloucestershire, where population density was up from 2.73 badgers per square (sq) kilometer (km) during the 1990s to 4.4 in 2006.
