A note about the roots of the Wildlands Project ....
It is vital to understand that the Wildlands Project is just one of many elements of control that are being put into place by global socialists to control the population. Relocation of wildlife, large wilderness and roadless areas, and the relocation of populations into "sustainable communities" are all a part of the goal of implementing Agenda 21, or the United Nations Agenda for the 21st Century.
Born out of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Agenda 21 serves as the comprehensive blueprint for achieving "sustainable development". It's many tentacles are being put into place by the agencies of the U.S. government such as the State Department, the Department of Energy, the Forest Service, Fish and Wildlife, Bureau of Land Management, etc. It is also being aided along by countless non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
It's important to note that though the planners are bypassing congress in their implementation of the plan, it can be stopped at the state and local levels.
The Agenda 21 document contains 40 chapters which address issues that range from controlling water, land, air, and minerals, to policy recommendations for disposal of toxic and hazardous wastes, to technology management and transfer. There are many other facets of the program including managing the role of women and children, and the role of indigenous people in the process.
In short, it is an all-encompassing, revolutionary plan for controlling the entire population of earth, marketed under the slick packaging of environmental and ecological necessity.
One only has to read the first couple of chapters to begin to get the sense of the socialist roots of the plan. It calls on all "developed" countries, such as the United States, to come to the aid of "developing" countries. In other words, the playing field is to be leveled. The rich, industrialized countries will help fund the destitute, impoverished countries, transferring the technology and wealth necessary to achieve sustainable development.
It is the obvious opinion of these global marxists, that humans are the scourge of the earth. They contend that we are destroying everything around us. If we are not stopped, they lament, future generations will be doomed to live in world-wide poverty, while not being able to enjoy a vast eco-system, clean air, clean water, etc.
In other words, your human activity must be significantly curtailed, or to be more blunt every aspect of your life must be controlled, with a heavy hand, to ensure that you are not going to jeopardize the earth's blessings for future generations.
Ironically, the very essence of the program will rob future generations of their ability to enjoy the fullness of the earth and its resources, if its architects are successful in achieving their goals. It is the goal of these designers to place a large majority of the earth off limits to human beings, with the population being crammed into sustainable communities, where nearly everything a resident needs will be within a 5 mile radius (so automobiles will be unnecessary).
It will also rob future generations of their ability to own and control the land, which is the foundation of all individual liberty.
Already, we are seeing massive areas of land being placed under restrictions called "conservation easements", "scenic byways", "protected areas", "biosphere reserves", "wildlife refuges", etc. The names are varied and plentiful, but the result is always the same: More government control; less human freedom.
This brings us back to rewilding, or as they call it "The Wildlands Project".
The following was taken from the official site of the Wildlands Project. It is their official mission statement.
As you read it, remember that it is God who created the earth and all that lives therein. It has survived human activity for hundreds of years. These revolutionary marxists believe they own it all, and will use the perceived need for its "protection" to control you. They are bold in their statements of intention, and they are working to execute the many aspects of their plan on a daily basis. Their actions beacon you to prayerfully consider what you can do to educate yourself and others to stop their liberty-robbing agenda from being implemented.

Official Mission of the Wildlands Project (emphasis is of D.W.):
As the new millennium begins, humanity approaches a watershed for wildlife and wilderness. Human activity is undoing creation; the remaining degraded and fragmented lands will not sustain their biological diversity and evolutionary processes. We need a bold plan to halt and reverse the destruction. Healing the land means reconnecting the parts so that vital flows can be renewed.
The mission of the Wildlands Project is to protect and restore the natural heritage of North America through the establishment of a connected system of wildlands. The idea is simple. To stem the disappearance of wildlife and wilderness we must allow the recovery of whole ecosystems and landscapes in every region of North America. Recovery on this scale will take time100 years or more in some places. This vision for continental renewal rests on the spirit of social responsibility that has built so many great institutions in the past and acknowledges that the health of our society and its institutions depends on wildness. The land has given much to us; now it is time to give something backto allow nature to thrive once more and to restore the links that will sustain both wilderness and the foundations of human communities.
We are ambitious: we live for the day when grizzlies in Chihuahua have an unbroken connection to grizzlies in Alaska; when wolf populations are restored from Mexico to the Yukon; when vast forests and flowing prairies again thrive and support their full assemblage of native plants and animals; when humans dwell with respect, harmony, and affection for the land; when we come to live no longer as conquerors but as respectful citizens in the land community.
We are called to our task by the inability of existing parks, wilderness areas, and wildlife refuges to adequately protect life in North America in the face of increasing human numbers and technological change. While these areas preserve spectacular scenery and provide outstanding recreational opportunities, they are too small, too isolated, and represent too few types of ecosystems to perpetuate the continents biological wealth. Despite the establishment of parks and reserves from Canada to Central America, true wilderness and native, wildland-dependent species are in precipitous decline.
- Grand predatorsincluding the grizzly bear, gray wolf, wolverine, jaguar, and American crocodilehave been exterminated from large parts of their pre-Columbian range and are imperiled in much of their remaining habitat.
- The disappearance of these top predators and other keystone species hastens the unraveling of ecosystems and impoverishes the lives of human beings.
- Forests have been over-cut, cleared, and fragmented, leaving only scattered remnants of once vast ecosystems. Even extensive habitats, such as the boreal forest, face imminent destruction.
- Tall- and short-grass prairie, historically the most extensive community type in North America, and once home to an extraordinary concentration of large mammals, has been almost entirely destroyed or domesticated.
- Deserts, coastal areas, and mountains are imperiled by sprawling subdivisions and second-home development.
- Motorized vehicles penetrate the few remaining roadless areas on illegal roads and tracks.
- A rising tide of invasive exotic speciesecological opportunists of the global economythreatens a new wave of extinction and the eventual homogenization of ecosystems everywhere.
- Climate change adds to the vulnerability of wildlands that remain.
These trends, acting globally, are among the notable causes of the current and sixth major extinction event to occur since the first large organisms appeared on Earth a half-billion years ago. The Wildlands Project, as a remedy, is working to create regional and continental networks of conservation areas that will protect wild habitat, biodiversity, ecological integrity, ecological services, and evolutionary processes.
The Meaning of Wilderness
We reject the notion that wilderness is merely a remote destination suitable only for backpacking. We see wilderness as a wild home for unfettered life. Wilderness means:
- Extensive roadless areasvast, self-regulated landscapesfree of mechanized human use and the sounds and constructions of modern civilization;
- Viable, self-reproducing populations of all native species, including large predators;
- Natural patterns of diversity at the genetic, species, ecosystem, and landscape levels.
Such wilderness is absolutely essential. It is not the solution to every ecological problem, but without wilderness the planet will sink further into biological poverty, and humanitys communion with its roots will be lost forever.
We seek partnerships with grassroots and national conservation organizations, government agencies, indigenous peoples, private landowners, and with naturalists, scientists, and conservationists across the continent to create networks of wildlands from Central America to Alaska and from Nova Scotia to California. We seek to heal natures wounds by designing and creating wildlands networks and by restoring critical species and ecological processes to the land.
The wildlands networks will:
- Support the repatriation of top predators where they have been extirpated from present and future wilderness areas and national parks;
- Establish large areas of wild habitat where plants and animals are unrestrained, where native species thrive, and where nature, not technology, determines their evolutionary fate;
- Establish extensive linkages between large natural areas to ensure the continuation of migrations and other movements vital for the survival of healthy populations;
- Enable the recovery of natural processes such as fire.
We will implement these networks by:
- Supporting the designation of new conservation areas and improving the management of existing public lands;
- Campaigning both for the removal of public subsidies that maintain abusive land-use practices and for positive incentives that encourage responsible land management;
- Assisting land owners and land trusts in the voluntary protection of critical parcels of private land;
- Cooperating with transportation agencies to help remove or mitigate barriers to wildlife movement;
- Working with planners at all levels to create a balance between the needs of nature and human society;
- Promoting the restoration of disturbed lands and waters until that time when nature has recovered and can manage itself.
- Inspiring the people of North America to care for their homefor its own sake and for the sake of those yet to come.

"A corridor of the wild through the high country of North America - Yellowstone to Yukon - has long been a dream of environmentalists and biologists like Mr. Neudecker, who say that grizzly bears, elk, wolves and other four-legged commuters need help in looking for mates or new habitats. The great national parks of the West, they say, are becoming genetically isolated islands, cut off by development, urbanization and their ever-present iconic symbol, the barbed-wire fence."

"Step by step, piece by piece, the Wildlands Project is coming to fruition. The Project, foundational to the U.N.Biodiversity Treaty which was never ratified by the U.S. Senate, calls for approximately 50 percent of the United States to be set aside as "wildlands", where no human can enter."
