The most efficient wildlife research programs and the most satisfactory methods of applying their results are greatly enhanced if the information is present in such an interesting and understandable manner that it becomes of practical value ot the people. Extension education has the function of translating the results of research into usable form and presenting it to the people. The development of a wildlife extension program is based on the needs of the people, and the various phases of the program are designed to meet and solve wildlife probems confronting the people. The purposes of this study are: 1. To determine the possible need for a wildlife extension program in Utah. 2. To determine the extent of national need for wildlife extension work. 3. To sumarize the extension programs in states now having a wildlife extension service. 4. To develop a guide to wildlife extension work in Utah.
