Wilderness education is a new and emerging discipline. Organizations, programs, literature and current research were reviewed for wilderness educational content. A set of wilderness education goals was developed under the philosophy of environmental education using the Tbilisi Declaration as a foundation. Content validity was established through soliciting comments from a panel of experts. Goals were revised and are proposed in this paper. The aim of the Goals for Wilderness Education is to actively protect the quality of wilderness areas.
