    Description

    Quantitative measures of the economic nonconsumptive values of observing wildlife in forest environments are not widely available. Six case studies of fish and wildlife amenity values are briefly described. The annual total consumers' surplus value of all six activities was twice the total out-of-pocket expenditures spent to visit the six sites involved. The rationale for additional extensive research and development on nonconsumptive economic values of fish and wildlife are outlined.
