Abstract

The purpose of this article is to report and interpret data from the 1980 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation that are most relevant to the issue of evaluating alternative mechanisms for funding wildlife conservation, particularly nongame species. The data presented in this study was produced by means of the first comprehensive nationwide survey targeted at non-consumptive wildlife users. Nonconsumptive participants favor the idea of obtaining new sources of revenue to support nongame conservation based on voluntary contributions and general taxes. Data are also presented concerning expenditures on more than 20 items that might be used in wildlife oriented activities and which may be suitable for an excise tax to generate funds for nongame management. Although no single item is directly comparable to the items taxed for federal aid related to game management (Pittman-Robertson and Dingell-Johnson programs), a number of areas have considerable potential for generating revenue for nongame conservation.
