"The 8th WWC continued to build on a proud tradition of setting practical conservation objectives. As these pages will reveal, scientists, Native people, politicians, corporate leaders, artists, educators, and others reviewed the first wilderness area in Latin America, which was made possible by Mexico's pioneering wilderness law. The delegates also expanded the list of private-sector wilderness areas, convened the first Native Lands and Wilderness Council, created the International League of Conservation Photographers, critiqued new wilderness inventories and maps, and much more. Wilderness, Wildlands, and People details the many accomplishments of the 8th WWC and its vision for a better future."--Jacket.
