The Country's Longest-Running Trends Survey on Attitudes Toward Wildlife

Arizona Game and Fish Department Trends Study: The Country's Longest-Running Trends Survey on Attitudes Toward Wildlife

For almost 30 years, the Arizona Game and Fish Department has partnered with Responsive Management on the nation’s longest-running trends study on attitudes toward wildlife. Since 1992, Responsive Management has conducted this survey of Arizona residents to measure their participation in wildlife-related recreation and their attitudes toward wildlife-related issues and the Department itself. Findings from the survey have continually helped the agency maintain relevancy by keeping abreast of the values and perceptions of the Arizona general population.

“Arizona has changed over the past 30 years as the state has grown,” notes Arizona Game and Fish Department Director Ty Gray. “However, the value people place on wildlife and outdoor recreation has not wavered. This is confirmed each time we conduct the Department’s biennial trend survey.”
