Yosemite Goes Global: Connecting with International Parks

Yosemite rangers maintain relationships with sister parks in other nations, including formal recognition from Chinese delegates.

Yosemite National Park planted the seed for the national park idea, both in America and around the world. Today, many countries are establishing parks and protected areas to preserve beautiful landscapes, as well as the rare plants and animals that thrive in these natural environments. Parks around the world look to Yosemite as a powerful example of leadership in park management, preserving natural and cultural resources, and cultivating a special and memorable visitor experience.

To maintain productive and collaborative relationships with global parks, Yosemite needs support for park ranger exchanges and hosting of international delegates. Building these relationships is essential to mutually benefit and better protect natural areas on a global scale. Yosemite is partnering with Tanzania, Chile, Mongolia and China on ways to improve visitor experiences, protect wildlife and implement sustainable practices.

Your support will help Yosemite engage with the global park community and inspire stewardship across many continents.
