NY Invasive Species Public Awareness Phase III Study Now Available

Phase III of the CCE ISP study New York Residents’ Awareness of InvasiveSpecies consists of detailed telephone interviews with three categories of respondents who self-reported levels of awareness. The specific objectives of Phase III of the study were to characterize the experiences and perspectives related to invasive species of three key stakeholder groups: farmers, aquarium owners, and water gardeners. Each of these groups has the potential to influence the spread of invasive species in New York State. This part of the study can be accessed by clicking here: Public Awareness Study Phase III.

The three-phase study can be found in its entirety at the Resources Page.
