Highlighted Report

Virginia Tech, with support from the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, conducted a survey of wildlife viewers in New Mexico. Wildlife viewing is among the fastest growing outdoor recreation activities in the United States, with significant implications for the work of wildlife agencies. The final report describing results of this survey provides agencies with valuable information about wildlife viewers’ behaviors, experiences, perceptions, needs, and preferences. This information is essential for more meaningful and substantive engagement by state agencies with this often underserved constituency.
