FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is using an online questionnaire to gather additional public input about the future of quail restoration efforts in the state.

Department biologists, realizing that simply stocking birds was not effective, crafted a 10-year restoration plan which focused efforts on improving habitat in six areas of the state.

Researchers earlier this year issued their five-year benchmark report on efforts to date. They followed up the report with a series of public meetings to listen to ideas from the public about where to take these efforts over the next five years.

Kentucky Fish and Wildlife is now posting an online questionnaire on the future of the plan so that more people can offer their input. The questionnaire is available on the department’s website at fw.ky.gov.

Participants should consider reading the benchmark report to better understand the efforts made since the project started in 2010. The report is available online at the department’s website.

The questionnaire will remain online for public comment through June 30.
