Wilderness SocietyAn olive branch offered at the Wilderness Society (04.2010)
The leadership of the Wilderness Society is attempting to end a damaging split within its ranks by making it easier for all members to vote at annual general meetings, regardless of whether they can attend the meeting in person.Over the past 33 years, the Wilderness Society has grown from its small Tasmanian roots into a national body with many branches. It raises $15 million a year in donations and has more than 45,000 paid up members, making it the largest environmental group in Australia. But since last year’s annual general meeting, attended by just 14 people, the Society has been deeply divided and legal action is pending.
