Abstract

This paper presents preliminary findings from a pilot study involving focus groups and semi-structured interviews with members of the public at three locations in Kent, UK. The pilot study aims to inform a large scale baseline survey of attitudes, beliefs and values towards biodiversity, the focus species (lynx and Pine Marten) and their conservation and reintroduction in the UK.
