Our mission is to protect wilderness and inspire Americans to care about our wild places.

Guess who owns 618 million acres of American wildlands? You.

You own red-rock canyons and turquoise rivers. Desert plains and jagged mountain peaks. You own Arctic tundra, southern wildflower fields and cool northern forests. All these iconic wild places are part of your "great American backyard."

Today, about 235 million acres of federal wildlands have been permanently protected as wilderness, parks, refuges or other protected areas. But that’s only a third of our public lands. And about 100 million acres of pristine wildlands are still at risk. These wildlands could qualify for future protection, but the window of opportunity is closing fast.

At The Wilderness Society, we're working to protect these 100 million pristine federal wildlands within the next 20 years, before development fragments what remains. If we don't protect these last remaining wild places now, they could be lost forever.

Our wild places are our country's natural legacy, and they provide:

  • Clean air and water,
  • Abundant wildlife,
  • Havens for recreation, solitude and learning,
  • Important sources of renewable energy,
  • Vital natural resources that must be managed wisely, and
  • A foundation for a healthy planet.

These lands are ours to protect -- for our enjoyment and for future generations. Please support The Wilderness Society today.
