Protecting America's National Treasures
From majestic mountain ranges in Alaska to the vast sawgrass prairies of Florida’s Everglades, national parks have safeguarded our nation's stunning landscapes, natural habitats, and native wildlife for more than a century. Located in all 50 states and covering some 85 million acres in total, our parks are increasingly subject to environmental and human impacts which threaten the health of wildlife and the habitats on which their survival depends. Over the past 50 years, the National Park Foundation (NPF) and conservation partners have helped conserve over 135,000 acres of additional park land.
NPF is committed to helping to conserve native wildlife and restore critical habitats and ecosystems in our nation’s most treasured places for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of current and future generations. NPF and our partners apply the best conservation science to study and protect the most biologically diverse landscapes in the country, ensuring the health and vibrancy of park environments supporting iconic wildlife from bison and wolves to bald eagles and California condors.
