Amanda Herron, an undergraduate student at Newcastle University is investigating red and grey squirrel monitoring methods for her dissertation. To help with her research, she is asking squirrel conservationists to take part in a short survey.
Directions from Amanda:
There are 2 sections to the survey: Section 1 comprises of 30 images of squirrels captured from remotely triggered wildlife cameras positioned in woods in Northumberland. You may notice ear tags on some of the squirrels. For each image select either red or grey beneath. Some images are more difficult to identify than others but just have a go!
After the 30 image questions, clicking 'next' will direct you to section 2 where there will be 7 questions for you to complete. There will then be 2 questions to inform me of your level of experience with UK squirrels. Finally please provide your gender, age, occupation and the first half of your postcode, simply so that I can see what portions of the public are represented in my survey.
You may choose to leave the survey at any time. Your responses will be anonymous to me and used solely for the purposes of my research. If you would like to receive the correct answers to the survey, I will be happy to provide them upon email request.
Please note, this Google Forms survey is only compatible with the Google Chrome web browser and will not work properly in Internet Explorer. Many thanks for participating in this survey.
