This image is commonly mistaken as relating to Agenda 21. In actuality it comes from The Wildlands Project brought forth by the UN Convention on Biological Diversity Plan to Restore Biodiversity in the United States in 1991. This plan was a proposal to set 50% of North America aside to protect Biodiversity from Human Influence. Though this idea was introduced to the public more widely during the same year as the introduction of A21, they are two separate projects.

The Faces Behind the Project
The Treaty did not suddenly appear at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio. It was first proposed by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in 1981. The land use policies required by the treaty were also expressed in dozens of other UN documents and at other UN conferences, and incorporated into the agendas of NGOs for implementation through programs and legislation at the local, state, and federal level long before the Treaty was ever presented to the world.
An early indication of the Treaty’s land use policies was embodied in a legislative proposal called the “Endangered Ecosystems Act,” advanced by the Audubon Society in 1990. In 1991, the Keystone Center in Colorado conducted a study on “Biodiversity on Federal Lands.”
Historical timeline of the Wildlands Project
The Convention on Biological Diversity has 3 main objectives:
1. The conservation of biological diversity
2. The sustainable use of the components of biological diversity
3. The fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising out of the utilization of genetic resources

Today the project has taken on a more elusive form, building entities and organizations that don’t seem to be affiliated with the project at it’s face. This tactic seems to be used as a manner of gaining support and momentum in a more friendly manner without immediately revealing it’s connection to the UN.
