Tourism and Wolves on Wednesday Access Utah

Aug 15, 2012

What should be the place of tourism in Utah’s economy, especially with regard to the kinds of jobs it creates?  And how do we promote cultural tourism as opposed to windshield tourism? On Wednesday’s AU we feature a conversation from the recent Utah Rural Summit, with Leigh von der Esch, Managing Director of the Utah Office of Tourism and Maria Twitchell, Executive Director of the Cedar City-Brian Head Tourism Bureau.

Then, in a report in the journal Science, USU Wildlife Ecologist Dan MacNulty and his colleague Tim Coulson from London’s Imperial College present a new method for  predicting the effects of environmental change on wildlife—specifically the Yellowstone wolves.
