The U.S. government established Yellowstone National Park in the late 1800s as a haven for animals to thrive and for human visitors to reconnect with nature. In this video, you can see an example of how important Yellowstone is. This rare footage includes pronghorn and elk herds migrating undisturbed, something they would be hard pressed to do anywhere else. Though elk are not considered an endangered species, the range of land on which they migrate has been greatly reduced due to human interference. Meanwhile, the pronghorn must build its diet from whatever it can forage for. However, thanks to the benefits of national parks and the wildlife refuges that surround them, these animals are able to find what they need to survive.
