Badgers are generally nocturnal, but, in remote areas with no human encroachment, they are routinely observed foraging during the day. They prefer open areas with grasslands, which can include parklands, farms, and treeless areas with crumbly soil and a supply of rodent prey.

Badgers are born blind, furred, and helpless. Their eyes open at four to six weeks.

Latin name: Taxidea taxus

“Protecting public land is part of my spiritual being. It’s central to my identity to be in wilderness and to see it protected.” Durlin is proud to protect public lands for future generations, saying, “The highlight of my childhood was our family’s weekend outdoor trips. I look forward to my grandchildren having similar experiences outside in their lifetimes, and it wouldn’t be possible without ONDA.”

The Trump administration has formally begun efforts to dismantle the BLM sage-grouse plans that resulted from years of stakeholder input and scientific study.  These plans protect sage-grouse and the sagebrush habitat that is home to more than 350 species. But Trump and Secretary Zinke are pushing to undermine these critical conservation plans, risking further impacts to our public lands and continued sage-grouse population losses – all to benefit industry.
