The animals that inhabit our national parks capture our curiosity and our hearts. The opportunity to see these animals in their natural setting has become a major attraction to parks such as Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Everglades.
Our national parks provide some of the best, and sadly some of the last, remaining habitats for countless species. In fact, one-third of endangered and threatened species in our nation can be found within park boundaries.
But many of our national parks are being impacted by nearby development, pollution, recreational uses, and other human activities. Our parks and our wildlife are in jeopardy. Take a closer look at the animals of the parks, the threats they face, and how we can work together to protect them.
