International Wildlife Law book

A Handbook on

International Wilderness Law and Policy


Now available—the first comprehensive guide to wilderness laws and policies around the world: A Handbook on International Wilderness Law and Policy, published by The WILD Foundation (Boulder, Colorado, USA) and Fulcrum Publishing (Golden, Colorado, USA).


This book:

  • provides      a detailed "how-to" guide for conservation professionals      interested in developing new wilderness laws or policies in their      countries; 
  • provides      the most current information to practitioners in countries where      wilderness laws and policies are already in place, but who are interested      in learning from approaches and experiences in other countries.


In addition to case studies of wilderness laws and policies written by leading conservationists from 12 countries and one indigenous group (the Confederated Salish and Kootenai), the book also includes a matrix allowing for easy comparison of the different wilderness definitions in use around the world.


This book was edited by Cyril Kormos, WILD's VP for policy, with contributions from leading wilderness policy experts from around the world. It  includes a preface by Vance Martin, president, The WILD Foundation, and Ian Player, founder, The WILD Foundation and the World Wilderness Congress, as well as a foreword by Karen Taylor-Goodrich (National Park Service) and Elena Daly (Bureau of Land Management) who are chair and vice-chair respectively of the U.S. Government's Interagency Wilderness Policy Council.
