Document title

A comparison of attitudes and knowledge about the endangered species act

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



A survey of public opinion on the Endangered Species Act (ESA) of 1973, which was up for renewal since 1993. A survey questionnaire was distributed to three groups in southern California - Audubon Society members, students, and hunters. Despite the differences in these groups according to income, political affiliation, gender, etc.., they all supported the renewal of the ESA with modifications and economic compensation for private landowners. Hunters had the most knowledge about the ESA, although the A. argues that the public needs to be made more aware of the Act so that it can exercise more influence over its renewal. - (SLD)
