Nevada Wild Harvest Initiative

  • Wild harvest is sustainable, healthy, and environmentally friendly. Nearly 50 million American citizens hunt and/or fish.
  • Wild foods are shared throughout families and social circles. Benefits extend to many millions more.
  • There are significant ecological and financial costs of replacing wild meat and fish with agricultural equivalents.
  • Since 1939, excise taxes collected from hunters and anglers have contributed more than $18 billion in real funding for state-based conservation work.
  • American hunters and anglers contribute more than an estimated $400 million dollars per year to wildlife conservation solely through membership fees and donations to conservation based Non-Governmental Organizations.
  • The total value of ecosystem services provided by natural habitat in the 48 contiguous states is estimated at $1.6 trillion, annually, which is equivalent to more than 10% of the U.S. GDP.
