Headwaters Economics conducted an economic analysis of the counties in the Gila region, which is where Mexican wolves have been reintroduced. This region is rich in public lands and wilderness and scores at the top for environmental amenities and quality of life. According to the Headwaters report, these are important economic drivers in the west, but to reap their benefits, communities must position themselves to take advantage of their environmental assets, the way those in the Greater Yellowstone region have.
