Conservationists have long known that conservation funding provides benefits including much-needed jobs and tax revenues to the American economy. “The Conservation Economy in America,” a study commissioned by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, reports how much America invests in natural resource conservation each year, and the numbers are staggering. Even the most dedicated conservationists may be surprised to learn just how much conservation contributes to the economy each year, as reported by Ammoland.
“A new study provides a revealing look at America’s economic stake in conservation, totaling the total public and private investments in fish, wildlife and natural resources conservation at $38.8 billion per year – monies that, once spent, circulate through the economy and stimulate an impressive $93.2 billion in economic activity.”
