1 Endangered Species in the Big Woods of Arkansas Public Opinion Survey March 2008 by Survey Research Center Institute of Government University of Arkansas at Little Rock 2801 South University Avenue Little Rock, Arkansas

2 Endangered Species in the Big Woods of Arkansas Public Opinion Survey UALR/IOG Survey Research Center March 2008 Introduction The UALR Institute of Government Survey Research Center (SRC) conducted a telephone survey at the request of the Big Woods of Arkansas Habitat Conservation Plan, which provided funding for the survey. The purpose of the survey was to assess the attitudes and opinions regarding the Ivory-billed Woodpecker and other endangered species in the lower White River basin of Arkansas. The survey was conducted with two groups. One target population was adult Arkansas residents residing in Phillips, Monroe, Woodruff, Desha, Arkansas, and Prairie Counties. These counties generally include the area referred to as the Big Woods. The sample from this population was drawn from a list-assisted random digit-dialing sample purchased from Marketing Systems Group. The other target population was owners of 100 acres or more land in Phillips, Monroe, Woodruff, Desha, Arkansas, or Prairie Counties. The names and addresses for this population were obtained from lists provided by the individual assessor s office for each county with a total of 1,456 unique names and addresses. Phone numbers were appended from a phone match provided by Marketing Systems Group. The survey was conducted between January 7 and February 6, Each sheet in this report contains the question presented to the respondents and a table and chart of the percentage results. The results are broken out for the two groups: 1) 100+ acres landowners and 2) General Public. In addition, result highlights are presented for each question. A total of 790 interviews were conducted; 402 interviews with landowners of 100+ acres and 388 interviews with Big Woods counties residents. The overall response rate for the surveys was 58 percent. With this level of completed interviews, one can say with 95 percent confidence that the margin of sampling error is ± 5 percentage points.

3 significance was determined by chi-square analysis on valid responses of the two groups. Based on the size of the data set, the level of statistical significance is designated to be Summary of Findings Overall, the vast majority of all respondents support the conservation of endangered species. The respondents believe they are well informed on conservation efforts with the Ivory-billed Woodpecker and see the laws and regulations associated with endangered species as having no effect on them. Although a majority of all respondents said that they know or have heard that the Ivory-billed Woodpecker has been rediscovered, there is a notable percentage (18%) of 100+ landowners that do not believe in the rediscovery. The 100+ landowners were more than twice as likely than the General Public to not believe the bird was sighted or rediscovered. The majority of respondents in both groups believe that the rediscovery of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker has been good for Arkansas and that the size of public lands should stay the same. About 80 percent of both groups feel that endangered species regulations have not hurt them economically, but 13 percent of the 100+ landowners do feel damaged. Over 55 percent of both groups think that the rediscovery of the Ivorybilled Woodpecker has the potential to help the economy and about the same number feel that tourism has increased in Brinkley. With regard to other endangered species in the area, the majority of both groups think the Red-cockaded Woodpecker should receive the same conservation attention as the Ivory-billed Woodpecker. The groups are less likely to favor the same level of conservation efforts for the freshwater mussels. Around one-half of the 100+ landowners said they thought the government would intervene and take control of their land if an Ivory-billed Woodpecker was discovered on their property. The majority of people in both groups said they would report an Ivory-billed Woodpecker if they saw one on land they own or lease. Nearly one-half of 100+ landowners and around 6 out of 10 of the General Public believe that regulations would have no effect on their hunting or fishing, however, 37 percent of the 100+ landowners and 27 percent of the General Public think that their hunting and/or fishing has been limited.
