John Robison, public lands director of the Idaho Conservation League, thinks wolf tourism has "tremendous potential." He wishes that the Idaho Department of Fish and Game would do more to educate people about wolves, and promote them as an animal to be viewed, and not just hunted. A University of Montana study shows how lucrative that can be, too!

Wouldn't it be great if we could change the course of wildlife management in this way?

Of course, for those who are only interested in "the bottom line" this is a solution worthy of their consideration and I challenge them to seriously reflect on this option.
