Pricing Wildlife and Outdoor Recreation
by Green & Gold News |
What’s the value of a bear in the wild? How much is a dipnetting trip worth, and is salmon caught while dipnetting more valuable than commercially-caught salmon?
Lots of things in nature don’t have a market price, but economists “put a dollar”
on them anyway. The UAA College of Business and Public Policy Department of Economics continues its
Economics After Hours Speaker Series on Thursday, April 6 from 6-8 p.m. with a presentation
from Aaron Enriquez, postdoctoral researcher.
Please join us at The Writer’s Block Bookstore & Café (3956 Spenard Road) for his presentation covering the why and how of nonmarket valuation, with applications to charismatic wildlife species, highly-visited national parks, and Alaskan fisheries.
Light refreshments and cash bar available.
Event location - The Writer's Block Bookstore and Cafe (3956 Spenard Road)
