Famous National Parks

Updated on October 22, 2011

Nature has blessed us with so many beautiful things and breathtaking sites. The whole Earth is filled with such diverse animal and plant life that till now, man hasn’t completely figured out the exact number of species of living things. This plant and animal habitat is spread all over the planet from; rain forest to hot deserts and from the frozen areas to the depth of the ocean, all of our Earth is filled with living beauty.

Of course human beings are a major part of this whole ecosystem and play a major role in its prosperity. We are in other words responsible for the preservation of everything around us. This is because we are the only creation on this Earth that can think and do stuff that no other living creature can do. So taking this into account it is upon us to preserve the beauty of nature.

Since the last century mankind has been taking some small and some big steps in trying to preserve the natural wonders around us. One big step in this regard is making of National Parks. National parks are actually pieces of land blessed with diverse and unique animal and plant habitat, the government of a particular country who has such pieces of land, reserve the area to save it from urbanization. 

Majority of the world’s National parks are well facilitated with proper staff to look after the animals and plant life and also allow people to witness the natural beauty upfront. By reserving a piece of a land for a National Park, governments not just save a natural habitat from being destroyed, but it also adds revenue to their tourism industry.

People love to visit national parks to enjoy the beauty of nature and this is why most of the modern national parks are well facilitated to cater the needs of people visiting the place.
