The Wildlands Project was founded in 1991.

"One of the critical problems is that the areas previously set aside to protect wildlife in North America were not always chosen with ecological values in mind. This "ad hoc" approach to conservation has left Canada, the United States, and Mexico with systems of protected areas that are too small, too isolated from each other, and represent too few types of ecosystems to sustain native wildlife over time.

"We believe that we can stop the extinction crisis in North America. We believe we can protect and preserve what other countries have already lost-our unique and irreplaceable biodiversity-by protecting the lands and waters upon which all plants, animals, and people depend upon to stay healthy.

"The Wildlands Project's work to reconnect the continent begins with "MegaLinkages"--vast pathways that tie natural places together." [1]
