Zion National Park rescues on the rise. In fact, this once quiet little park has now spread into a vast and sprawling meadow of land stretching from Nevada to Utah. The beautiful cliffs and mountains are no longer hidden in thick forest. Thanks to a long standing agreement between the government and local business owners, the park is now accessible to all who want to see it.
There are some things visitors should keep in mind while visiting the park. First, most wildlife are not threatened or even impacted by human activities. In fact, the opposite is true. With more than two million visitors each year, there is a chance that one or more animals may become lost or suffer accidental death or injury. To prevent this, campers and hunters are required to follow specific rules and regulations in regards to using public lands.
For those new to wildlife viewing or wildlife behavior, there is an abundance of information available. To learn about lions, zebras, coyotes and other protected animals that can be found in Zion National Park, there is a wealth of information available online and in libraries. To get ideas on how best to preserve the environment, and thus wildlife, visitors are encouraged to join the “Zion Bears Club.” Through this club, members learn about conservation efforts, what kinds of educational activities are available, and how to help preserve the wildlife population. As a member, you can help plan trips, volunteer with programs, and enjoy the site without worrying about leaving tracks or disturbing the animals.
In order to preserve the environment, the animals must stay healthy. This means staying up to date on how their habitat is being treated and protected. The staff at the park is always willing to share information, whether it is in the form of trail cameras or signs or brochures describing the flora and fauna. They also offer brochures and maps of various wildlife species that can help visitors plan a trip.
Not only does the park have information and guides for visitors, but it also has rescued for animals that are distressed. In many cases, animals in the park will have been injured or have been victims of illegal poaching. At the Zion Rescue Mission, you will find trained professionals ready to take care of any kind of emergency. In particular, animals rescued from hot springs, abandoned mines or other hazardous conditions are cared for by the Zion Rescue Mission. Because of their knowledge and experience, this kind of rescue is done every day – and you can help if you have a car or other vehicle that can be used to transport a distressed animal.
When visiting Zion National Park, you don’t need a hiking or camping adventure to get your workout. Instead, animals help preserve the environment by walking, jogging, cycling, swimming and other physical activities. Some of these activities are designed to keep animals active and occupied while others are meant to help them relax. For example, at the Great Salt Lake Park, there are walking and running trails where you can interact with nature and other visitors. If you love playing in the snow, the Yosemite Valley Loop Road offers great skiing opportunities as well as close biking access to the park. Of course, there are plenty of hiking trails as well as beautiful scenery to enjoy in between your outdoor adventures.
Taking a break from the endless day of work can help people get some much needed rest. At the Zion National Park, you will find several hotels, cabins and camping grounds that offer luxurious accommodations. This means that no matter the time of the day, you can find a comfortable place to stay. The park features luxurious cabins that have been constructed to look like ancient ruins. They look similar to the ruins of Mayan temples but modern conveniences like high-speed internet and televisions are available in these cabins.
Not only do you get to experience the wonderful scenery in Zion National Park, but you also get to enjoy a wide array of recreational activities while you’re there. You can go hiking, mountain biking, boating, fishing, swimming, golfing and more. However, it is extremely important to take care of your horse, even though it is technically allowed to roam freely within the park boundaries. This is because wild animals, including wolves, scavenge for food in the areas where human beings once roamed. As a result, the animals often eat whatever they can find. It is highly important to report any animal activity that you observe to the nearest law enforcement agency.
