Primary students' attitudes and knowledge of elementary of endangered species (Master thesis)

Σταμούλη, Ερασμία


The loss of biodiversity is a matter of concern worldwide and its conservation is considered top priority. We examine the knowledge and attitudes of primary school students’ towards wild and endangered species in the region of Epirus, Greece. We also investigate the effect of students’ education level, gender and region of residence on our variable of interest. We conducted a survey of 400 students in the 10 to 12 age range from urban and rural areas. Our results suggest that students are not entirely aware of the endangered species that exist in their region. However, they like them, are interested and protective of them. As expected, students in rural areas are significantly more aware, interested and protective of endangered species, than students in urban areas. We find that there is a positive and significant correlation between students' knowledge and attitudes. Students who know more about endangered species, were also more interested and protective of them.
