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:

A view of an arch formed in the Perito Moreno Glacier at Los Glaciares National Park in the Argentine province of Santa Cruz on March 11, 2018. The arch formed at the tip of the glacier along the shore of Argentino Lake, and started collapsing into the water on Saturday. A natural display that happens just once every several years, such arches take shape when the glacier forms a dam of ice that cuts off the flow of water around it into the lake. When the water eventually breaks through, it opens up a steadily wider tunnel that becomes a narrow arch, which soon collapses.
