About the report
The purpose of the research was to design and implement a method for assessing attitudes, motivations and behaviours toward biodiversity management amongst private landholders. These measures were derived from literature review and developed into a survey conducted with landholders in areas where the ESP is active. To better understand those land managers who are contracted to the ESP, it was also important to consider the views of those who expressed interest in the scheme but did not bid, unsuccessful bidders and also surrounding landholders who had not previously expressed interest in the Program.
