Attitudes of Georgians Toward Nongame Wildlife: A Survey

In 1988 the Georgia Department of Natural Resources contracted the Survey Research Center of the University of Georgia to conduct a telephone survey of public attitudes toward nongame wildlife. Phone numbers of potential respondents were selected using random digit dialing, a method that allowed all telephone households (97% of all Georgia households) an equal chance of being selected. Respondents were asked a series of 17 questions of which 12 pertained to interest in and support of nongame wildlife and 5 related to demographics. A total of 541 individuals were surveyed. Over 81% of the respondents expressed at least some interest in nongame wildlife. These and other data were used to assist administrators charting the direction of Georgia's nongame wildlife conservation efforts.
