Badgers are under imminent threat in Britain. Scapegoats for farmers' failings and outrageous political backslapping.
As early as June this year, thousands could meet a violent end at the end of a gun in a mass slaughter driven by the dairy industry. Read more. See the video above for our recent Bristol demo, where Viva!'s founder and director Juliet Gellatley says why people should boycott dairy to save badgers. Read about our demo here and see the press coverage.
Please help us spread the message that one of the best ways to save badgers is to dump dairy and tell others why you're doing it. We have produced our new Dump Dairy – Save a Badger leaflets (PDF) and posters (PDF) and we are holding a Day of Action on Saturday May 18. Order your free materials for door-dropping or stalls and get involved! Also, Viva! is supporting the National March Against the Badger 'Cull' on Saturday, June 1 in London.

Shockingly, Nikon not only facilitate and promote the shooting of wild animals with cameras – they also do it with guns. The hypocrisy of this global company is one they have seemingly fought hard to keep from UK consumers.
Many wildlife photographers use Nikon cameras, but few know that Nikon sponsor trophy hunting in the United States and also produce a riflescope specifically designed for killing large wild animals in Africa such as lions despite their numbers plummeting.

Why do we eat some animals and share our homes and lives with others? The horse meat scandal has made millions question this relationship and many are waking up to their unwitting role in animal cruelty. They are also realising that the best way to end this suffering is to simply stop eating animals. It's easy, kinder and healthier, too! Go veggie or even better go vegan.
In a shocking development, people who eat processed meat may have eaten dog, cat or even rat. The authorities and supermarkets in Britain don’t know because they don’t yet test for it!Read our major exposé in the Daily Mail.

Shockingly, one of the world's largest online retailers is selling a product in Britain that no British supermarket will touch.
Foie-gras is produced by force-feeding ducks and geese so much food that their livers expand by up to ten times its natural size. Amazon do not allow the sale of whale or dolphin meat, so why do they allow third-party sellers to offer foie-gras? Especially, as its production would be illegal in Britain because of animal cruelty.
