This book provides an introduction to many of the most famous national parks of the world, arranged by continent. The pictures are beautiful. The text takes a gee-whiz tone that gets annoying: everything in these parks is fabulous, darling. There are also quite a few silly errors, such as the text that claims that the Grand Canyon is as much as 18 miles wide while the caption of an adjacent picture claims that it is as much as 17 miles wide.

Great Barrier Reef National Park (Australia). Considered one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, the planet’s largest coral reef system is also one of its most endangered. This is in large part due to accelerated coral bleaching caused by global warming, and an increase of tourists eager to see it while it’s still relatively healthy. The only national park on this list that’s more focused on history and culture than nature and wildlife, Tikal is one of the largest archaeological sites of pre-Columbian Maya civilization. Located in a rainforest in northern Guatemala, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.

World National Parks For Information On The National Parks Of The World And Their Wildlife. National parks are usually created to protect something unique

World National Parks For Information On The National Parks Of The World And Their Wildlife. Yellowstone National Park was created in 1872 by the United States and was the world’s first national park. Australia created the Royal National Park seven years later. National parks are usually created to protect something unique. This could be rare flora, exotic wildlife, great biodiversity, sensitive ecosystems, distinctive geologic features, or combinations of any of these. For example the Sagarmatha National Park, in Nepal, has a distinctive geologic feature, Mount Everest (Sagarmatha is the Nepali name for the mountain).

This book provides an introduction to many of the most famous national parks of the world, arranged by continent. It's coffee-table sized, with each park getting four to eight pages of treatment. The pictures are beautiful.

The text takes a gee-whiz tone that gets annoying: everything in these parks is fabulous, darling. Given the real threats that many parks face, from air pollution to poaching, I'd like a little more realism. In addition, the authors take the typical European view that roads and gondolas are great ways for people to see the heart of a wilderness; a North American perspective is that roads and gondolas make a place no longer wilderness at all. The authors generally seem unaware of the impact of tourism, except in the cases of Isla del Coco (Costa Rica) and Galapagos Islands (Ecuador).

The authors, all Italians, also have a needlessly romantic view of indigenous peoples in Australia and the Americas. They see the glories of the indigenous past in places such as Mesa Verde but are oblivious to the present tribe living next door. A similar Great White Hunter view is evident in the treatment of African game parks.

The texts also tend to buy park mythologies, such as the creation of Yellowstone around a campfire (not true). There are also quite a few silly errors, such as the text that claims that the Grand Canyon is as much as 18 miles wide while the caption of an adjacent picture claims that it is as much as 17 miles wide. I don't care which is true, but please be consistent. Other minor errors about those parks I know well got distracting.

But, oh, the pictures are beautiful.
