CDFW Special Journal Issue on Effects of Non-consumptive Recreation on Wildlife in California

The issue will focus on how non-consumptive recreation (meaning recreation other than hunting and fishing; things like hiking, camping, mountain biking, horseback riding, etc.) that is often believed to be consistent with the goals of wildlife conservation may have significant effects on wildlife in protected areas where that recreation is occurring.
