Comments

This expensively published, but rustic appearing magazine is a well-funded attempt to popularize the wildlands project while romantically deceiving the readers about the extremely radical intentions of the leadership. The original publication of Noss's, Foreman's and Davis's agenda stated that the short-term goal was to restore fully half of the coterminous states to wild state, and that the long-term goal was to re-wild the country to eliminate human influence from 90 percent of these 48 states. Predators are to be fully restored and to roam without interference by human settlements (which will be confined to tight-knit centers of population) or their agriculture and other production for human needs.
