Abstract

This Note first describes developments leading to the Wilderness Act, including the wilderness preservation movement and early wilderness regulations, and introduces the Wilderness Act and post-Wilderness Act legislation. In order to understand the framework under which the agencies operate, this Note then describes the management of public lands, including the history of federal land ownership, the regulations and policies promulgated by the BLM, the courts' role in agency review, cases regarding wildlife in wilderness, and sub-delegation of agency authority. Next, this Note argues that the BLM's policy of delegating wildlife management to the states violates the Wilderness Act. This Note concludes by offering possible solutions to this problem.

Keywords: Wilderness, Wildlife Management, BLM
