This is a non-profit site established for the purpose of sharing information and discussion about wildlife viewing in national parks. We thank Pronghorn Productions for the images and videos used in this site.

When fully operational we hope that this is a user-enhanced and user-updated site. We encourage visitors and users to create an account in our forum and to spread the word about where and when to see wildlife in National Parks, and what to look for.

Our goal is to promote and advocate responsible, ethical, and successful wildlife watching, with an emphasis on national parks.

Welcome to Wildlife Watching in National Parks!

This site is dedicated to wildlife watching in America's national parks. "Bear" with us as we get this site up and running. When fully operational this site will be your go-to site for up to date information on wildlife watching in national parks (and maybe someday, state parks and other wildlife preserves as well).

Wildlife viewing is one of America's favorite past-times, generating hundreds of millions and perhaps billions of dollars annually and providing countless hours of outdoor recreation, spritual enrichment, family bonding, and entertainment. It is our hope and expectation and hours outdoors viewing wildlife not only benefit the observer, but ultimately, benefit the wildlife as well. Watching wildlife fosters an appreciation and love of wildlife, which should engender a concern and passion for wildlife, which in turns leads to wildlife conservation and activism.

And there is no place better to watch wildlife than in a national park unit. National parks can be in every state in the unit as well as many U.S. territories (national parks of course include historic sites, monuments, battlefields, memorials, and several other designations). Parks are great places to view and watch wildlife in part because they are managed by professional biologists, the animals are not hunted so they are more tolerant of people, and many species that are persecuted on private lands (e.g., grizzly bears, wolves, prairie dogs) are allowed to roam freely on national park units.
