Alberta’s wild lands tie together all other aspects of the province’s wilderness.

They provide habitat for the wildlife that call them home, and provide a setting for healthy headwaters, wetlands and aquatic ecosystems. They regulate the climate, filter the air and absorb, purify and slowly release water to benefit all living things.

Wilderness exists where large areas are characterized by the dominance of natural processes, the presence of the full complement of plant and animal communities characteristic of the region, and the absence of human constraints on nature.

Wilderness is not – and should not be – a past and vanishing force in life. It is, as far as anyone can see into the future in our rapidly changing and uncertain world, an abiding value.
