If the parks and wilderness areas must preserve anything, even at the cost of unpopularity, it must be this: the possibility of contact with wild forms of being. This requires two things. First, we must preserve those other things as freely existing, self-organizing nations in their own right. Second, we must preserve true contact with them, simple, unmediated contact, contact with our bodies, our senses, contact where what we experience is their presence. — Jack Turner.
