Signed into law in 1964, created the National Wilderness Preservation System and recognized wilderness as “an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain."

It is great that this land is being preserved but I would like to see all this land being used more. Maybe using it to relocate endangered species. Using some more of the land for recreation so that people are more aware of their surroundings. Also, even though 9.1 million acres of land is quite large, I would like to see some more land being protected as well as other nations taking our 'cue'.
