Hunting, fishing and watching wildlife
Wildlife recreation increases across the nation
More than 90 million U.S. residents age 16 and older participated in some form of wildlife-related recreation in 2011, up 3 percent from five years earlier, according to a recent U.S. Census Bureau report. In total, wildlife recreationists spent $144.7 billion in 2011 on their activities.
These findings come from the final national report with results from the 2011 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recreation released by the Census Bureau on behalf of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.
Conducted since 1955, the survey is one of the oldest continuing and most comprehensive recreation surveys in the United States., collecting information on the number of anglers, hunters and wildlife watchers, as well as how often they participate in wildlife-related recreation and how much they spend on these activities.
