Wildlife tourism is a sector of the travel industry that offers visitors the opportunity to view, appreciate, or learn about wildlife. Like all other sectors of the travel industry, wildlife tourism injects “outside money” into the local economy. The Elakha Alliance contracted with Dean Runyon & Associates to evaluate how reintroducing sea otters to the Southern Oregon coast could impact the travel and tourism industries in the region. This presentation reviews the findings of this study, including an analysis of the projected economic impacts from sea otter related tourism.

The guest speaker will be Jordan Bohlander, from Dean Runy0n & Associates.
