The Non-Consumptive Value of Steller Sea Lion Protection Measures


The economic benefits of providing protection to the endangered Western population of Steller sea lions are primarily the result of the non-consumptive value individuals attribute to such protection. Non-consumptive value is also referred to as non-use, passive use or existence value. The objective of this project is to use state-of-the-art survey, sampling and statistical techniques to estimate the value that US citizens place on providing protection to Steller sea lions. This information is important for the management and monitoring of marine resources, but is currently not available. This is a multi-year project.
