WISCONSIN WOLF SOCIAL SURVEY RESULTS NOW AVAILABLE ON WISCONSIN DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES WEBSITE

August 26, 2014

MADISON - The results of a statewide social survey on attitudes toward wolves are now available on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources' website.

Participants from throughout Wisconsin took part in the department's survey. With a large scope and cross-section of respondents, the department was able to gather a great deal of information regarding attitudes toward wolves in Wisconsin.

These survey data provide an important piece of information, and will be used in conjunction with other data and public input to help inform Wisconsin's wolf management decisions.

The department would like to acknowledge the Wolf Advisory Committee, thousands of survey respondents, and a number of stakeholders and volunteers throughout Wisconsin for their continued involvement and assistance with wolf management in Wisconsin.

The "Public Attitudes towards Wolves and Wolf Management in Wisconsin [PDF]" social survey data are available on the department website. For more information, visit dnr.wi.gov and search keywords "gray wolf." The survey results can be found within the "publications and reports" section.

The report is in draft format, and an external group of researchers will be asked to review it prior to finalization to ensure unbiased methods and results.
