Description: The Wildland Research Institute (WRi) at the University of Leeds (UK) came into being in October 2009. Its origins go back to a United Kingdom research councilfunded seminar series called Wilderness Britain? which ran between 1998 and 2000 and was coordinated from the University of Leeds. This opened up the wider debate on wilderness and rewilding in the UK and later joined with others to form the Wildland Network with support from the British Association of Nature Conservationists (BANC). The Wildland Network took the debate forward with a focus on the wildland and rewilding movement in Britain. It was at the Wilderness Britain? seminar series that Steve Carver (WRi) and Alan Watson of the Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute (ALWRI) first met, initiating a long series of collaborations between WRi and ALWRI and cemented by a firm friendship and common interest in wilderness, wildness, and motorcycles.

Keywords: Wildland Research Institute (WRi), Wildland Network, British Association of Nature Conservationists (BANC)
