Midelfort question: Week 3

Groth and Wilson state that “the common assumption has been to assume good nature and bad humankind.” Do we face an uphill battle in the preservation of cultural landscapes for a similar reason that we struggle in advocating for preservation as effectively as environmental conservationists do? If environmental conservationists focus more on conserving “wild” areas untouched by man, does that mean cultural landscapes are more difficult to advocate for, or do we gain some of the steam that environmental conservation has had, because a landscape is not just human, but natural and human?
