Yellowstone National Park is preserved. As the world's first national park, Yellowstone did not come with a rule book or a manual on how national parks should be run. Things didn't always go well, but they continue to learn and improve the ways we preserve this amazing place.To preserve the park people need to take care of the environment so that the parks can stay clean. The Endangered species Act, Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and the Wilderness Act ect. were all created to protect the park.Yellowstone National Park is the world’s first national park, an idea that spread throughout the world.Yellowstone was set aside because of its geothermal wonders—the planet’s most active, diverse, and intact collections of combined geothermal, geologic, and hydrologic features and systems, and the underlying volcanic activity that sustains them.

The park is the core of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, one of the last, largest, nearly intact, natural ecosystems in the temperate zone of Earth. It preserves an exceptional concentration and diversity of terrestrial, aquatic, and microbial life. Here, natural processes operate in an ecological context that has been less subject to human alteration than most others throughout the nation—and indeed throughout the world. This makes the park not only an invaluable natural reserve, but a reservoir of information valuable to humanity.Yellowstone contains a unique and relatively pristine tapestry of prehistoric and historic cultural resources that span more than 11,000 years. The archeological, architectural, historical, and material collections constitute one of the largest and most complete continua of human occupation in the western U.S. and collectively represent the material remains of the birth of the National Park and conservation movement.Yellowstone was the first area set aside as a national public park and pleasuring ground for the benefit, enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. Visitors have a range of opportunities to experience its unique geothermal wonders, freeroaming wildlife, inspiring views, cultural heritage, and spectacular wilderness character.
