Badgergate is the result of a not-for profit collaboration between Amanda Barrett and Sultana Bashir. Amanda has made wildlife documentaries in many countries for both UK and international audiences. Sultana is a wildlife biologist by training who works internationally on environment and development.
Amanda and Sultan are part of an independent team drawn together by the realisation that culling badgers as a measure to control bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is both risky and misguided. They are following the bTB saga closely and are profoundly concerned that politics is driving current policy rather than the best available evidence from science, economics and other relevant disciplines.
