Strangford Lough Survey - Please Take Part!

Please consider taking part in a 10-minute online survey on Strangford Lough. Constance Schéré, a PhD candidate at King’s College London, is studying marine conservation at Strangford Lough. Part of her PhD research is to understand the role equity (i.e. fairness and inclusion) plays in conservation. Equitable conservation is vital to ensuring effective protection of natural resources while maintaining human well-being, yet equity tends to be overlooked in protected area assessments.

In this fully anonymous survey, you will be asked to respond to questions about how fairly you believe they are being treated as a stakeholder (e.g. fisher, aquaculture, recreational user, local resident, etc.) of Strangford Lough.

This survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and can be done on a computer or smartphone. At the end of the survey, you will be asked if you’d like to participate further by being interviewed (this can be done over the phone or via Skype to ensure social distancing measures). An interview will give you the chance to elaborate on any issues you feel are most important to you regarding how Strangford Lough is being managed and protected. Since the online survey is fully anonymous, your identity will not be revealed in the study results if you choose to be interviewed. All participants who complete the survey can choose to be entered into a prize draw to win 1 of 3 Amazon gift cards, worth up to £100.
