National Parks

A national park is a park in use for conservation purposes. Often it is a reserve of natural, semi-natural, or developed land that a sovereign state declares or owns. Although individual nations designate their own national parks differently, there is a common idea: the conservation of 'wild nature' for posterity and as a symbol of national pride. An international organization, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and its World Commission on Protected Areas(WCPA), has defined "National Park" as its Category II type of protected areas.

Wallpaper Description:

"Tongass Breach." A magical moment I shared with nature, where a humpback whale briefly allowed me into its world. Two very different species shared a natural moment with no one else around; something I will never forget as long as I live. This breach occurred in front of my kayak within the protected waters of the Tebenkof Bay and Kuiu Wilderness Areas in Alaska. Surrounded by silence, I could hear the whale calls above the surface. I will cherish and hold this moment dear. I am privileged and thankful.
