After the 8th World Wilderness Congress, CEMEX officially declared the first
wilderness area in Latin America: The El Carmen Wilderness Area. The El Carmen
Wilderness is a core zone of 80,000 acres, one of the first of several such
areas hoped for in the region. This project is one of the leading transboundry
conservation initiatives in the world and sets a precedent for effective land
designation and management. Looking to the future, WILD hopes to initiate an
experiential program such as a wilderness trail in the area. The project was
recent featured in
National Geographic Magazine (February, 2011).
The Wilderness Task Force collaborative portal site, an online communication and information tool, was launched in February 2011. This site provides up-to-date information about international wilderness policy issues, links to valuable wilderness resources and is a forum for discussion on wilderness and wilderness policy topics. Check out this fantastic new addition to WILD’s web interface at: www.wildernesstaskforce.org.
With the generous support of CEMEX and the assistance of the International
Journal of Wilderness, we are pleased to announce a special publication of The
Wild Planet Project.
Featured topics include a series of articles exploring the benefits of wilderness areas and policy tools for new wilderness designations. Download PDF version of this publication.
