The purpose of national parks is to preserve a country's unique landscape, wildlife, and cultural heritage for the benefit of present and future generations, and to serve as resources for science, education, recreation, and enlightenment. All over the world, national parks and reserves are set up where most people agree contain unique or representative resources that deserve to be set aside and preserved by the government.

In 1872, the United States gave birth to the world's first national park - Yellowstone National Park, in order to protect Wyoming's remarkable geological curiosities; and today, there are nearly one thousand national parks located in more than a hundred countries on this planet.
