The Icelandic wilderness is under threat with plans to build highways and power lines, despite the will of the majority of Icelanders to make it into a national park. Bjork, the famous Icelandic singer is leading the opposition and calling for help from all over the world to sign this petition in order to put pressure on the Icelandic government.
The central highlands of Iceland is like nowhere else I know: it is a vast landscape of natural wonders, and what I love about it, is that there is very little in the way of development there. Some of the regions like the Fjallabak nature reserve and Vatnajokull National park do have protection status for good reason. But there are many, many other special areas of this region that I think need protection also.
