The modern concepts of wilderness, wildness, and self/other may indeed be evolving. But old worldviews do not dissipate quickly, and behaviors that put into practice new ways of being take even longer to become established as we feel our way from conflict toward complementarity. If a revised idea of wilderness does have a role in a sustainable future (and I believe emphatically that it does), then we must hook it to protecting wildness. And if humans and their cultures also are fundamental expressions of wildness, then we must allow for wildness (and wilderness) to flourish in any conception of sustainable development.

Edward Grumbine The Protection of Wildness Today How do we begin to move from preserving wilderness to protecting wildness? How do we start to embrace ecosystem lifeways and decrease our dependence on biosphere lifestyles? What follows are notes toward answers to these questions for North Americans. For the present, the first step in any such strategy is to continue to focus on increasing the size and number of the protected areas we know as wilderness. These lands are the last remnants of wild diversity and are faced with imminent development.
