Depending on where you travel, a trip to a U.S. national park can mean you’ll visit the home habitat of the happy face spider, or take a hike through “the salamander capitol of the world.” Our new interactive map lets you explore some of the most amazing places in the United States and dream up future travel plans so you can experience our country’s natural treasures firsthand. Meet some of the animals that live in these unique and diverse places, and learn how you can help protect them. Discover fun facts about the park known as the “River of Grass” and another that’s home to 10 wolf packs.
Once you know more about all that our national parks protect, you can take action and become an advocate for the animals that inhabit them. You can use this knowledge to plan an outdoor adventure trip, earn your Voice for Animals, Public Policy, or Naturalist badges, or write to a representative in Congress or the Senate and tell them why you care about the national parks and the animals that live there.
