"Wilderness. It is a place, an experience, a tradition, a remembering, and a future. It is an ancient forest homeland, a living refuge for wildlife, a sanctuary for endangered species and biodiversity. Wilderness is the very archive of life. The essence of purity, it serves as a guarantor for fresh water, clean air, and health. Vast and free, wilderness provides a wild place to play, a space for solitude. It offers the chance for renewal in Nature, reconnection with the land, reunion with the spirit."
Executive Director, BC Spaces for Nature
