Development and industrial activities are placing increased pressures on wilderness areas around the globe, including some areas that were once considered remote and unlikely to be altered by human activities. These threats to the world’s unspoiled treasures require new alliances of environmental groups and other players to take decisive actions.

Pew supports international efforts to protect some of the world’s most important remaining wilderness areas.
