This photo from the 3rd World Wilderness Congress (Inverness and Findorn, Scotland 1983) shows Ian Player (founder of the WWC, WILD and the members of The Wilderness Network), Sir Laurens van der Post (journalist, humanitarian, philospher, conservationist, etc), and Vance Martin (President of WILD).

The 3rd WWC had many outcomes for wilderness including:

  • The announcement by Mrs. Thatcher’s government of their formal ratification of the World Heritage Convention;
  • Formation of the Wilderness Associazione Italiana; and,
  • The first address to an international conservation conference by a leading psychologist (by Professor C.A.Meier).
