Beyond Myrtle Rust MBIE Project Survey
The Beyond Myrtle Rust MBIE project has designed a survey for individuals, groups, and organisations involved in researching, monitoring and responding to myrtle rust infestations. The aim of the survey is to find out what myrtle rust activities are currently being carried out and the motivations for conducting these activities. This is the second time we are sending this survey out in order to get a wider set of views.
The survey is expected to take between 10-15 minutes and participation is voluntary. Individuals will not be identified by name, however we would like to know what organisation, if any, participants belong to. We will not use the responses to this survey to scrutinise an individual’s or organisation’s activities, but they will be used to assess the range of observations/surveillance being carried out on myrtle rust at an individual or collective level.
We will then use this information to provide information and policy advice to government.
Attached is an information sheet that provides more details on the survey for participants.
