Wilderness Area – A natural environment that has not been significantly modified by human activity
Wilderness areas are the most intact, undisturbed areas left on earth – places that humans do not control and have not developed.
No matter how wild her nest (wilderness) looked, she would let no human near it.
Wildernesses are natural environments that have not been significantly modified by human action.
Cold environments are among the last wilderness areas on Earth. They have fragile ecosystems and are protected by international agreements because some types of economic development would put them at serious risk.
Sustainable development in cold environments involves the use of appropriate technology to avoid disturbing wildlife as far as possible.
Other examples of wildernesses include:
- Marine wildernesses
- National parks and forests
- Amazon rainforest
- Congo rainforest
- Australian Outback
