Economics of Birding and other Watchable Wildlife

Birders Mean Business!
People who watch birds in our state generate a total economic impact of $1.4 billion each year. Tucson Audubon is raising the awareness within government and the business community of this fact and the issues around it, particularly that conserving wildlife habitat makes economic sense for our state as we focus more on attractive, rather than extractive, industry to create a cleaner and more sustainable future for southern Arizona.

We provide some resources here on the economics of wildlife viewing. We also encourage birders to leave “Birder Calling Cards” at businesses they use while birding. You can download the file below, print it double-sided, and cut the cards to size. You can also pick up cards at our Nature Shops.
