My thesis research in collaboration with Carolina Raptor Center (CRC) investigates the efficiency of the center's visitor experience in promoting environmental values and the activation of pro-environmental behaviors. Through surveys, follow-up interviews, and site observations, I aim to determine the similarities and differences in environmental values and motivation between three groups related to CRC in different capacities: those visiting CRC, those living within two miles of CRC, and those interacting with CRC via social media.
