The Business of Wildlife

One of the most important, yet difficult challenges facing wildlife agencies is increasing the public's awareness of the economic value of wildlife. Wildlife associated recreation including hunting, fishing, bird watching and other outdoor activities all add dollars to national and state economies. Yet, loss of this potential is rarely considered when conflicts occur between habitat protection and development. This slide show addresses the economic value of wildlife and can be adapted for use by all states in the Southeastern Association membership.
