A public opinion poll would provide vital information about the attitudes of the general population toward conservation. In addition, it will provide information about the World Biopreserve's image within the population. The actions of the Biopreserve could then be adjusted to increase popular support. This is invaluable to the effectiveness of the program because any legislation passed without support among the people it affects is extremely difficult to enforce. Below is an example of a possible survey that could be distributed to the inhabitants of the islands. As progress is made in the building of the villages and implementation of the monitoring system, surveys would be updated to address specific issues that arise. These surveys would be distributed quarterly or yearly at the least.
