Our system of National Parks is truly unique. No other country in the world has chosen to set aside such vast and beautiful sections of their land for the preservation and enjoyment of their beauty and environmental benefits. For centuries, people from other countries have come here to visit and admire what we take for granted. We should be working on ways to bring more people to the parks, and to support qualified guides to help city-dwellers understand and appreciate their experience there. I believe it is our duty to protect and preserve this vast treasure that belongs to all of us.
