Abstract : The present report is organized into three major sections addressing key questions concerning nonconsumptive uses of wildlife resources: (1) Characteristics of nonconsumptive users of wildlife (2) Management implications: What types of habitat, wildlife, and land ownerships are involved, (3) Alternative mechanisms for funding wildlife conservation. The term 'nonconsumptive' is used throughout this report to refer to wildlife-oriented activities that do not involve the removal or intended removal of animals from their natural habitats.
