This was one of the key recommendations from a recent conference on wilderness in Britain. Without proper definition it is unlikely that "wilderness" will become part of government policy on the wilder parts of the British landscape. Before trying to define what it is we mean by "wilderness" it is important to survey the views of the general public. We would therefore be grateful if you could complete the following questionnaire.
Your answers will be used to identify people's feelings about "wilderness" in Britain and write a definition that will be acceptable to as many people as possible.
Thank you for your help in this work.

Before completing the questionnaire, it would greatly help our work if you could enter a few brief details about yourself. These are not compulsory and all responses will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
