My name is Fran Mulhall and I am a Graduate Student in the Department of Environment and Geography being advised by Dr. Michael Campbell.
I would like to invite you to participate in a study I am conducting toward my Master of Environment thesis on the topic: Values and Attitudes Toward Canada Geese and Population Management on the University of Manitoba, Fort Garry Campus. In this study, campus users including faculty, staff and students are invited to take part in an online questionnaire that aims to better understand how campus users feel about Canada geese on campus and different population management options. Your views are important and may inform policy decisions about wildlife management on campus.
The survey is estimated to take you approximately 20 minutes to complete and can be navigated using a laptop, tablet or smart phone. You do not have to provide any personal, identifying information to participate. Responses will be kept confidential, and no registration is required. Data will be analyzed as part of my Master’s thesis and published in academic journal articles as well as shared with the University of Manitoba Sustainability Office and the Vice-Provost office.
Your participation is completely voluntary. You can withdraw from this survey at any time or skip any questions you do not wish to answer, however, any responses will not be able to be withdrawn once submitted. All data is kept confidentially (you will not be asked for your name or any other identifying information) and I will not be able to withdraw your data once it has been submitted.
Additional information is available at the beginning of the online questionnaire. This study has been reviewed and approved by the Research Ethics Board at the University of Manitoba, Fort Garry campus. If you have any questions about this study, please contact Fran Mulhall (principal investigator) by email at email@example.com .
Thank you for your time.
