About the Global Alliance of National Parks

Mission

The GANP mission is to inspire and develop conservation and protection of the world’s natural resources found within national parks through education, promotion, and global community awareness.

Vision

We envision a world unified together in the recognition, celebration, and protection of the world’s national parks which showcase and protect the splendor and beauty of our world’s natural resources.

Philosophy

We believe that as people discover and learn more about the national parks of the world and the value these natural resources represent to the global community people will be more inclined to take action to protect them.

We believe that national parks should be visited and explored helping people discover their significance. Through these experiences and educational efforts, we believe the global community will become more responsible for protection and conservation efforts.

A: There are two types of members within the Alliance. The first is the official national parks located around the world.

The second type is the support organizations that help people engage and experience an individual national park.
