Wildlife Habitat Benefits Estimation Toolkit

[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Wildlife Habitat Benefits Estimation Toolkit, developed in collaboration between economists at Defenders of Wildlife and Colorado State University under a grant from National Council for Science and the Environment’s Wildlife Habitat Policy Research Program, is a set of easy-to-use spreadsheet-based valuation models, tables and databases directed at land use and wildlife planners and others interested in estimating the economic benefits associated with wildlife and habitat conservation in specific geographic regions.

The toolkit comprises models that generate estimates of

1. Open space property value premiums: the share of residential property prices in an area of interest that is attributable to the presence of a nearby open space, or the increase/decrease in property prices that would result from an increase/decrease in open space in the area;

2. Net economic benefits per activity day for participation in wildlife-associated recreation activities (fishing, hunting, wildlife-watching);

3. Visitation numbers for wildlife-associated recreation for an existing wildlife refuge or state game management area, or changes in visitation from the expansion/reduction of the acreage on such lands, as well as state-wide visitation numbers for other conservation acreage that provides for wildlife-associated recreation activities;

4. Annual values for ecosystem services provided by terrestrial and aquatic habitat or wetlands.
