The scope of NREPA is, in fact, very close to the "Wildlands Project" proposed by Foreman and conservation biologist Michael Soule.
Those who supported a state-by-state approach found NREPA unrealistic, and argued that wild areas threatened with immediate development could not wait for "political reality" to change.
This includes working to improve Williams' bill and endorsing NREPA (preferably with the addition of strengthening amendments); lobbying for a state wilderness bill for Idaho; working on recovery plans for wolf, grizzly, and salmon; and continuing to support federal reform of mining and grazing practices in the region.
