This study extends and refines previous works by considering the relative influence that key attributes have on two types of conservation initiatives: repetitive activities requiring minimal time or cost and nonrepetitive conservation practices that entail sizable financial outlays. Data collected in a 1979 statewide survey in Florida demonstrate that while several socio-demographic variables are significant predictors of reported conservation behavior, personal perception and definition of economic circumstance is the single most important predictor.
