National Parks Are Key to Protecting and Connecting Our Most Revered Places
- From southern Florida to northern Alaska, NPCA has worked for decades to protect America’s most iconic natural wonders like Denali, Yosemite, Isle Royale, Yellowstone, Great Smoky Mountains, Acadia, and Everglades national parks.
- National parks support a stunningly diverse abundance of fish and wildlife. But to remain healthy, wildlife need access to forests, streams, and other lands that lie outside protected park boundaries, and these areas are increasingly under stress from urbanization, resource development, climate change and other harms.
- Launched in 2010, NPCA’s Landscape Conservation Campaign harnesses the iconic power of national parks, their broad public and political support, and their capacity to engage and educate, to protect and improve the health of the land and waterscapes within which national parks reside.
- Through projects in a dozen landscapes NPCA is developing and implementing solutions that use national parks for broader conservation, whether as ‘anchor tenants’ of larger ecosystems, connective pathways linking wildlife habitat, economic drivers of local communities, or catalysts for resource protection.
