Over the last half decade a number of local and provincial surveys have been conducted to gauge and assess the interests and awareness of the people of BC on conserving and protecting species at risk. It is interesting to look back and see responses in these opinion polls and then consider whether much has changed? With the provincial Species at Risk Task Force outcomes in 2011 and the recent Auditor General's report on critical changes needed to affect conservation, it remains to be seen what the coming years will hold for BC's endangered plants, animals and ecological communities. Furthermore if tougher legislation and regulations, based on public opinion were to come into force would the public actually walk the talk and support it?
