Challengesfaced by National Parks and Wilderness Areas

  1. National parks protect historical buildings where America’s history was made but some of them are crumbling, and they are in desperate need of repair.

  2. Parks do not exist in isolation and the fact is becoming apparent as areas that surround the parks are being developed by humans. The species, however, do not recognize the boundaries and hence must move in and out. Therefore it is becoming harder to maintain these ecological corridors which make survival difficult.

  3. National parks are inviting places and for this case alien species end up causing havoc once they move into the ecosystem.

  4. The Earth climate is continuously changing and hence impact the national parks.
