Community workshops were held in coastal locations in Sarawak to raise awareness of cetacean conservation. Interviews were conducted up to 2 years later in four "workshop communities" as well as four villages where workshops were not conducted. Comparison of responses between respondents who had attended workshops (n = 127) versus those who had not (n = 233) indicate that workshop attendance led to significantly higher rates of "correct" responses on all three basic measures of cetacean conservation awareness. However, fishermen demonstrated a low level of knowledge of how to handle accidental entanglements, indicating a need for more effective communication strategies for this target group.
