Stunning Biodiversity

By Ryan Valdez
September 10, 2013

I've been fortunate enough to have the experience of international travel. The top of my list are always natural areas / landscapes / seascapes and other places of such wild beauty. They hold incredible biodiversity, provide us with ecosystem services, and even combine all of that with cultural heritage and identity. Not so long ago, it had occurred to me that I had traveled to more international protected areas than those in my own country. So now I am committed to celebrate, learn and protect all I can about the beautiful places in our US park system. I think we have the best park system of any country in the world, but that being said - it doesn't come free, nor is anything really forever without constant care and nurturing. I'm grateful to NPCA for taking on this most difficult role - and I am here to help!
