Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park (YELL) is a wilderness recreation area that was established on March 1, 1872. At approximately 3,468 square miles, Yellowstone is located in Wyoming (96%), and extends into parts of Montana (3%) and Idaho (1%). Yellowstone is the first National Park recognized worldwide. In 1978, Yellowstone was placed on the United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Culture’s (UNESCO) World Heritage List. In 1995, Yellowstone was placed on the List of World Heritage in Danger due to concern over bordering mining operations, as well as implementing foreign trout, building roads and possible bison slaughters to control the spread of brucellosis, an infectious disease that is spread through contaminated milk. In 2003, Yellowstone was removed from the List of World Heritage in Danger, due to the closing of the mining project and improvements made of the other threats.

When staying in the park, it is important to realize that the animals there are wild. Get to know what to do if you encounter an animal within the park. It is also a good idea to be informed about the other dangers such as the Geothermal Dangers and other hazards like falling trees and avalanches.

Yellowstone National Park is known best for “Old Faithful”, one of the more than 300 geysers in the park, but there are more than 10,000 hydrothermal features here, making Yellowstone the keeper of half of the worlds’ hydrothermal natural collections.  In 2015, there were 4,097,710 visitors to Yellowstone.
