October 27, 2014. Who really pays for wildlife? In this very important analysis, “Wildlife Conservation and Management Funding in the U.S.”, it is shown that the general taxpayer contributes substantial more to wildlife conservation than do hunters, despite the often mentioned comment that “hunters pay for wildlife management”. This document clearly shows that that is not true and that wildlife should be managed for all citizens as a public trust resource and not for special interests. Update April 15, 2016: A new article describing the same topic “The North American Model of Wildlife Conservation and Who Pays for It” very nicely (and in depth) describes how much more wildlife watchers and other non-consumptive users of wildlife contribute to wildlife management than just hunters. And added September 27, 2016. Why the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation is Problematic for Modern Wildlife Management. By M. Nils Peterson & Michael Paul Nelson. This is a super important professional/scientific article (available for free) that yet again challenges the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation and critiques the model for only giving white male hunters credit for wildlife conservation when the true story is much more diverse including non-hunters, women, and minorities.
