8th World Wilderness Congress announced

The 8th World Wilderness Congress (WWC) will convene from September 30 October 6, 2005 at the Egan Convention Center in Anchorage, Alaska. The Congress is expected to attract more than 1,000 experts from 40 countries, including numerous high-profile and senior-level political and corporate speakers.

The theme for the 8th WWC is Wilderness, Wildlands and People: A Partnership for the Future.

  • The 1st Mega-Flyover Scientist/explorer Michael Fay, who gained international renown for his 1999 trek through Central Africa, will offer the first report on his latest expedition by light aircraft across the entire African con
