Survey - Biodiversity of Montserrat children from 12 to 17 y-old
This survey is part of a project conducted by the Montserrat National Trust in collaboration with RSPB (The Royal Society for the Protection of Bird) and funded by EU BEST Initiative concerning the protection of Montserrat's natural environment.
The objective of this questionnaire is to assess the knowledge of the population LIVING* in Montserrat regarding the health of its fauna and flora.

This questionnaire is anonymous and will be used only to determine areas that need to be emphasized by the Montserrat National Trust in mounting public awareness programmes. At the same time, hopefully the survey will provide information to the Montserrat population about protecting the environment.

There is no right or wrong answer; just share with us what do you know. Please do not ask your parents or friends. Challenge yourself to see what you know.

The questionnaire is composed of 13 very short questions.
If you have already filled in this form, please do not do so a second time.

Please note that changes cannot be made after submission, so we invite you to do an overall review before submitting.

*LIVING: If you are living in Montserrat (staying on island more than 6 months per year), we invite you to fill in the questionnaire, if not, we thank you for your interest.
