Fighting for Wilderness, Australian Conservation Foundation, J Mosley & Messer
The third national wilderness conference was held at Katoomba in the Blue Mountains in September, 1983. The Conference was well attended by members of the Wilderness Society which had broadened its name following the success of the Gordon blockade. Among the speakers were Michael McClosky the Executive Director of the Sierra Club. The conference focused on lessons to be learned from past wilderness battles and strategies and actions for winning future battles. The key conference resolution on a draft national wilderness strategy came from one of the workshop recommendations. The conference resolved: That a national wilderness committee be established to ensure that a wilderness strategy is developed and implemented, that ACF convene such a committee as soon as possible and that representatives from each state and territory, from the ACF, TWS, Colong Committee and other wilderness related groups and from Aboriginal groups form the committee. Other parts of the strategy resolution called for the appointment of a national wilderness political lobbyist, the development of a model wilderness plan and a wide range of educational initiatives.
