Wanted: Young Farmers to Participate in Research on Attitudes about Conservation & Endangered Species

17264736_10154148629772434_4233743748831829347_nDr. Carolyn Peach Brown, Environmental Studies, from the University of Prince Edward Island is looking for participants in a study about young farmers’ perspectives on environmental conservation and Species at Risk on Prince Edward Island (PEI).  The aim of the research is to better understand the role that young farmers are playing, or can play, in protection of the environment and species at risk on PEI.  This will provide important information to guide the development of policy and educational programs about Species at Risk on PEI.

Specifically, she is looking for any farmer on PEI between the ages of 18 and 50. Knowledge about Species at Risk is not necessary for participation in the study.

Your participation would involve completing an on line survey (see link below) or Dr. Brown can send it to you via email. The survey will ask questions about your awareness and knowledge about Species at Risk on PEI and your perspective on their protection.  The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete, when you have time available. Your participation will be anonymous.  In other words, your personal identity will not be revealed.  Those who complete the survey will have the option of having their name included in a draw for a $100 gift card from an agricultural supply store of their choice.

Surveys will be sent to volunteer participants during the months of October to December, 2018. Survey participants will also have an option to participate in a follow up interview. These interviews would take place in January to March 2019.
