SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This survey is designed to elicit information about the public's 
perspectives on attitudes towards and beliefs about jaguars in the 
Northwestern Recovery Unit (southern Arizona and southwestern New 
Mexico). We plan to survey 200 residents, land-based business owners/
operators, related government agency personnel, and local wildlife 
association and/or conservation organization members in the 
Northwestern Recovery Unit. The survey will gather information on 
people's current level of knowledge about jaguar ecology and status, 
people's attitudes towards jaguars, and the social barriers and 
opportunities to jaguar conservation in this region. The surveys will 
be in-person interviews. This information will aid us in identifying 
groups that might be interested in being involved or staying informed 
about jaguar conservation and highlighting groups with particular 
concerns that might be addressed in forthcoming policies or programs. 
We will use information gained from this survey to formulate future 
jaguar conservation strategies as well as to create educational and 
outreach materials for jaguar recovery.
