The Third of the Three Wildlands Project Corporations

Wildlands Project, Inc. is the third Wildlands Project corporation, and is directly descended from and related to the first corporation, Wild Earth Society Incorporated (a Vermont corporation), rather than from the second Wildlands Project corporation, North American Wilderness Recovery Incorporated (an Arizona corporation).

The first Wildlands Project corporation was registered in Vermont on August 21, 1991 by a number of Dave Foreman's friends with the intent of publishing a journal called Wild Earth. It was not originally intended to be the lead group of the Wildlands Project, since the concept had not yet been completely developed; that came a year later from the seminal work of the Vermont corporation's co-founders, Reed Noss, Michael Soulé, John Davis, and David Johns. For 12 years the Vermont corporation was not only the think tank for its incorporators, but also a vehicle for Dave Foreman's ideas and writing, and a major source of his income. It was first known as the Cenozoic Society, Incorporated - Wild Earth. The hyphenated name changed in 2000 to Wild Earth Society Incorporated. Vermont records no longer show the original name.

In 2001, Wild Earth Society Incorporated registered the trade name, The Wildlands Project.

In 2003, Dave Foreman resigned from Wild Earth Society Incorporated to develop his Rewilding Institute, an unincorporated assumed name of North American Wilderness Recovery Incorporated. Most of the original officers and directors of Wild Earth Society Incorporated remained in place after Foreman's departure.

On July 29, 2005, the officers of Wild Earth Society Incorporated (the Vermont corporation) incorporated their group in Florida, using the name, Wildlands Project, Incorporated. Their federal EIN (Employer Identification Number) remained the same as the Vermont corporation, and so carried the Vermont corporation's IRS exemption with it.

In 2008, Wild Earth Society Incorporated registered the trade name, The Wildlands Network, to indicate that the Wildlands Project had matured beyond being a project, or work-in-progress, to a finished and functional instrument of social change. For the organization's official explanation of the name change, see their report Wildlands Connection Fall 2008 ("Wildlands Project Grows with a New Name"). The Florida organization re-incorporate under the new name and remains recorded in Florida filings as the Wildlands Project, Inc. doing business as the Wildlands Network.
