    Wildlife Viewing and Birdwatching has become the fastest growing recreational activity in the United States!

    A study was recently done on Adventure Tourism in eastern Kentucky about the Elk and Wildlife viewing potential. Click here for study.

    • Over 1,081,000 individuals participate in wildlife viewing and birdwatching in Kentucky creating 11,481 jobs and generating over $600,000,000 dollars for our economy.
    • The number of participants and jobs created has increased 20% and 18% respectively since 1996 making it one of the fastest growing "industries" in Kentucky.
    • Across the U.S., there are over 66,100,000 participants generating $48,400,000,000 in revenue.
    If these expenditures were the annual sales revenue of a particular company with a total of $38.4 billion in sales, this company would rank 34th on the Fortune 500 list, just above Dell Computer ($35.4 billion), UPS ($31.2 billion) and Microsoft ($28.3 billion)!

    The above are direct expenditures. The total economic impact is two times this or $1,203,100,000 for Kentucky and $76,800,000,000 for the United States!

    *The above statistics came from the 2001 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife Associated Recreation.
