Abstract/Description:
This study was conducted to assess Floridians' current awareness and knowledge levels, opinions, and attitudes toward wildlife conservation in Florida. The major objective of the survey was to document and update public attitudes toward wildlife and identify trends which have occurred since 1985. Public opinion was assessed through a random-digit dialing telephone survey. Methodology included randomly-generated telephone numbers as well as randomization within households to ensure that the survey results can be projected to the adult, resident, Florida population. Results from the 1995 telephone survey were compared to data collected from telephone surveys using similar methodology and identical questions in 1985 and 1987.
