Abstract We have contracted with the University of Arizona to conduct a survey of approximately 300 southern Arizona landowners, ranchers, and ranch managers to determine their knowledge of and attitudes toward jaguar habitat, the level of knowledge regarding payments for ecosystem services, and attitudes and interest toward a payment for ecosystem services intended to benefit jaguar habitat. This survey is necessary because there is currently no statistically significant information available about rancher attitudes toward jaguar habitat or their understanding of payments for ecosystem services. The survey will improve landowner knowledge on these issues and will inform our evaluation of the practicality of a payment for ecosystem services for the benefit of jaguar habitat in southern Arizona. It will also aid in the implementation of jaguar habitat conservation efforts by increasing our knowledge of landowner, rancher, and ranch manager attitudes toward jaguars and jaguar habitat management in southern Arizona. Information collected in the survey will include data on knowledge of jaguar habitat attributes, opinions and attitudes about the designation of critical habitat in southern Arizona, knowledge of payment for ecosystem services programs generally, and opinions and attitudes about participation in payment for ecosystem services programs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    We have contracted with the University of Arizona to conduct a 
survey of approximately 300 southern Arizona landowners, ranchers, and 
ranch managers to determine their knowledge of and attitudes toward 
jaguar habitat, the level of knowledge regarding payments for ecosystem 
services, and attitudes and interest toward a payment for ecosystem 
services intended to benefit jaguar habitat. This survey is necessary 
because there is currently no statistically significant information 
available about rancher attitudes toward jaguar habitat or their 
understanding of payments for ecosystem services.
    The survey will improve landowner knowledge on these issues and 
will inform our evaluation of the practicality of a payment for 
ecosystem services for the benefit of jaguar habitat in southern 
Arizona. It will also aid in the implementation of jaguar habitat 
conservation efforts by increasing our knowledge of landowner, rancher, 
and ranch manager attitudes toward jaguars and jaguar habitat 
management in southern Arizona.
    Information collected in the survey will include data on knowledge 
of jaguar habitat attributes, opinions and attitudes about the 
designation of critical habitat in southern Arizona, knowledge of 
payment for ecosystem services programs generally, and opinions and 
attitudes about participation in payment for ecosystem services 
programs.
