The Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians is currently working with Responsive Management, a research firm specializing in attitudes toward natural resources and outdoor recreation, to conduct a study about wildlife management in the Cherokee, North Carolina region. As part of this study, enrolled members of the EBCI are being surveyed about their opinions on wildlife management issues.

You do NOT have to participate in outdoor recreation or be knowledgeable about any specific issues to qualify for the survey—the researchers are looking for input from ALL EBCI members. Also note that this is a scientific, probability-based survey, which means that you can only participate in the survey if you are randomly selected to do so. This is why your participation in the survey is so important. As a survey respondent you are representing many other EBCI members.

We encourage you to participate in the survey if you happen to receive a call from one of Responsive Management’s telephone interviewers, (calling on behalf of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians) and are at least 18 years old. The survey takes around 10 minutes to complete and your responses will remain completely anonymous. Thank you in advance for your input!
