There are two main reasons for starting the European Wilderness Society
1. To secure wilderness for present and future generations! We (and future generations too) have the right to access, enjoy nature in its purest form! Therefore we identify existing wilderness areas, define restoration opportunities and work to guarantee their effective protection.
2. To secure public support for wilderness protection. Therefore we bring wilderness closer to people and ensure proper engagement! We offer visiting possibilities to various wilderness areas.
Why do I say this? Because during my last family holiday I spent 8 unforgettable days in the island of Corsica. I felt being in wilderness while hiking and swimming.I wonder whether anyone can confirm my feel of wilderness with scientific data….and please nominate then an area for our Wilderness Map.
