You are heresurvey research
Here is a press release I'm preparing for the Farm Bureau and California Cattlemen's to run in advance of our survey (which is getting close to being ready to test!). I would appreciate any comments.
A group of researchers at University of California, Davis is funded by the USDA to conduct cutting edge social and ecological research on rangelands. The project, supported by the California Farm Bureau Federation, California Cattlemen’s Association, and many other groups, aims to understand the many ways in which ranchers manage livestock and lands for multiple goals. This winter, they will be sending a survey to over 1500 ranchers in an effort to understand decision-making.
We are pleased to announce the release of the policy report (see attached file below)on the South Coast Regional Stakeholder Group associated with the Marine Life Protection Act. The report was prepared by J. Michael Harty, with survey research consulting done by the Center for Environmental Policy and Behavior. This is a good example of how academic research skills can be usefully combined with practioner knowledge and expertise. We may be expanding this effort to the North Coast Regional Stakeholder Group.
