Abstract
Recreation and wildlife puts demands on resources5 natural resources5 human resources ana. capital. Often these resources can be put to use in producing oater things, and hence there is an economic cost involved in providing the recreation ana wildlife. The economic cost is the value of the other goods and services sacrificed in order to have recreation ana wildlife. The demand for outdoor recreation, including wildlife-based recreation, has been increasing at an accelerating rate in recent decides, and there is every reason to expect this will continue (Clawson and Knetsch, 1966). This remarkable increase in outdoor recreation activity is most pronounced in the advanced countries, but its impact is felt through the tourist industries of less developed countries as well, particularly those that offer unique phenomena of nature.
