Request for Comments This request is for a new information collection. The purpose of this information collection is to obtain information from individuals in the seven United States (U.S.) jurisdictions containing coral reefs. Specifically, NOAA is seeking information on the knowledge, attitudes and reef use patterns, as well as information on knowledge and attitudes related to specific reef protection activities. In addition, this survey will provide for the ongoing collection of social and economic data related to the communities affected by coral reef conservation programs. The Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP), developed under the authority of the Coral Reef Conservation Act of 2000, is responsible for programs intended to enhance the conservation of coral reefs. NOAA intend to use the information collected through this instrument for research purposes as well as measuring and improving the results of our reef protection programs. Because many of the efforts to protect reefs rely on education and changing attitudes toward reef protection, the information collected will allow CRCP staff to ensure programs are designed appropriately at the start, future program evaluation efforts are as successful as possible, and outreach efforts are targeting the intended recipients with useful information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    This request is for a new information collection.
    The purpose of this information collection is to obtain information 
from individuals in the seven United States (U.S.) jurisdictions 
containing coral reefs. Specifically, NOAA is seeking information on 
the knowledge, attitudes and reef use patterns, as well as information 
on knowledge and attitudes related to specific reef protection 
activities. In addition, this survey will provide for the ongoing 
collection of social and economic data related to the communities 
affected by coral reef conservation programs.
    The Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP), developed under the 
authority of the Coral Reef Conservation Act of 2000, is responsible 
for programs intended to enhance the conservation of coral reefs. NOAA 
intend to use the information collected through this instrument for 
research purposes as well as measuring and improving the results of our 
reef protection programs. Because many of the efforts to protect reefs 
rely on education and changing attitudes toward reef protection, the 
information collected will allow CRCP staff to ensure programs are 
designed appropriately at the start, future program evaluation efforts 
are as successful as possible, and outreach efforts are targeting the 
intended recipients with useful information.

II. Method of Collection

    Information will be collected in the means most efficient and 
effective in the individual jurisdiction. For the three years covered 
by this clearance NOAA expect to use face-to-face interviews in 
American Samoa, internet-based survey techniques in Hawaii and Florida, 
and telephone and internet as appropriate in Commonwealth of the 
Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin 
Islands.

III. Data

IV. Request for Comments

    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of

(including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; 
(c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
