Short Description

From data gathered through the National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Association Recreation conducted by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the author concludes that age, income, gender, and type of land visited explain variation in wildlife watching willingness to pay (WTP) and consumer surplus (CS). In addition, results show that in-state and out-of-state wildlife watching is important to WTP and CS.
