"At the heart of our land and wildlife problems lies the fact that we are still protecting wild places much as we did in the years when Clagett, Langford, and Theodore Roosevelt were at work. Congress, the White House, the state and wildlife agencies, and even private conservation groups are continuing to draw boundaries around wildlands with the presumption that everything that lies within those boundaries will be safe and sound. Study after study has shown that this approach is not working, yet we rarely trifle with the idea that our initial premises might be wrong, that we started out at square one and blundered off in the wrong direction. " Roger DiSilvestro from Reclaiming the Last Wild Places
