Hellbenders have been rapidly declining since the 1980s due to various factors, including poor water quality. Many ecological issues contribute to poor water quality, and one important issue we can focus on is how we use the land around rivers and streams. Livestock owners along rivers and streams can greatly reduce the impact of their operations on water quality using a number of different management practices.
While most agricultural tourists responding to a Purdue University survey indicated that agriculture is an important industry, those who said they had visited a livestock farm tended to have concerns about how animal feeding operations affect water quality in their county.
