Parks thrive when the lands around them are healthy. The air, water and wildlife that move in and out of parks must be safe and protected for parks to flourish.

The true value of a place isn’t measured in dollars or acres, but in the lives it has touched. And while national parks account for just over 3% of protected lands, they are hubs for much larger landscapes and ecosystems.

Experts agree that we must fully protect 30% of our lands and waters to guard against the worst impacts of climate change. Parks are natural anchors for this plan. By building outward from places people know, love and value, we can enhance national parks while helping to protect every place on Earth from the impacts of climate change.
