Global Conservation Efforts by the National Park Service

nplogo The National Park Service (NPS) has a cool project called Park Flight that is designed to protect areas where migratory birds reside. Not only is NPS working with our protected land, but is partnering with places in Latin America to provide safe migratory bird routes. One of the coolest projects is “Canal to Canal: Panama-Ohio Migratory Bird Trail”.

The National Park Service has been a leader in the global national park movement. The world’s first national park ­ Yellowstone ­ was established by the United States Congress in 1872. Since then, the idea of creating nationally significant parks has spread to over 100 countries. The National Park Service also provides technical assistance and advice to countries around the globe.

While the NPS web site has limited information (you can contact them for more info), the program is a good one to promote the importance of global conservation. By combining government, private conservation organizations, and everyday people, we can conserve bird habitat together.
