Predator Opinion & Management Survey

Predator Opinion & Management Survey

Dear Sir or Madam,

Thank-you for taking time to participate in the survey conducted by Craig Glatthaar for his Masters in Conservation Science degree in collaboration with Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Stellenbosch University and Nottingham Trent University. This degree is supervised by Associate Professor Sjirk Geerts, Dr Katherine Whitehouse-Tedd and Dr Ruth Kansky.

The aim of this survey is to understand the relationships between farmers and predators and the mitigation methods (control methods) used. The hope is that this research will add to the knowledgebase that will assist with predator conflict management in South Africa.

The next page in the survey contains a consent form, required by Cape Peninsula University of Technology. This is to inform you that the information that you provide will remain strictly confidential and anonymous, while only being used for research purposes. All data will be anonymised for the purpose of analysis and any subsequent publication.

By completing the survey you also stand a chance to win an incredible prize worth $5878 for a couple, for a safari to Botswana.  

We request that you please answer all questions and provide consent allowing us to use your information and opinions in the study. We will be happy to share the findings of the survey with you and should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me as per the following details:

Yours sincerely,
Craig Glatthaar
