Lydia Nixon, PhD candidate at North Dakota State University, is looking for undergraduate University of Minnesota students to respond to her survey study. Her lab is conducting a research study about peoples’ perceptions of bats and how those perceptions may have changed since the beginning of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2) pandemic. If you choose to be part of the study, you will complete an anonymous survey that asks basic questions on a range of topics such as general knowledge about bats, feelings towards bats and other wildlife, and experiences with SARS-CoV-2.
