1 The Gulf Sea Turtle Conservation Group (GSTCG), a 501(c) (3) non–profit group of volunteers working
to collect data on nesting sea turtles and to promote sea turtle conservation, is considering creating a
video to educate people about sea turtle conservation. The cost of duplicating the video on a DVD and
mailing the DVD is $6.58. In a GSTCG member meeting, the video plan was discussed. Table 1. shows
the expected demand for the DVD at different suggested donation levels, and they can act as a singleprice monopolist if they choose to. The receipts will be used to fund GSTCG supplies for their data
collection and conservation work. At the end of each sea turtle nesting season, any excess funds are
donated by the GSTCG to a local non-profit sea turtle research and rehabilitation facility.
