    Description

    Manipulation of water systems in south Florida have created hundreds of miles of canals, dams, and other diversions. These efforts significantly altered the region?s hydrology and introduced unanticipated changes into the ecosystem. In 2000, the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) was authorized to restore, protect, and preserve these wetlands. Because CERP is the product of negotiated compromise between divergent interests, public outreach and involvement serves an important role. Using data collected from a telephone survey of south Florida residents (n = 1,806), four segments were derived to assist managers understand the public?s support of the restoration plan. Results show that most respondents (n = 984) had no awareness of the plan. Differing demographic and psychographic profiles of segments suggest that varied communication strategies are necessary to promote CERP to each subgroup. Using marketing principles, a prioritization schema is constructed to assist managers communicate with the public.
