“The mission of the National Park Service is to let people enjoy the parks and to preserve them for future generations. Do you think it is more important to preserve parks or to enjoy them? Why?”

I think both is important but it is more important to preserve the parks because if you don't preserve them now you can't enjoy them anymore in future.

I think they are both strongly important. It is good to enjoy the park or you to learn things and see new things but it is also very iportant to preserve the parks for future generations. o this is more like a trik question ther is no rigt or wrong answer.

I think that it is just as important to perserve AND enjoy,so we can learn about our past.

It is more important to preserve the parks so we can learn from them and so other generations can see how truly spectacular they are. It is fun to enjoy parks, but knowledge gained from the benefit of parks is more important.

I think both are important, but it's more important to preserve parks. Even though the reason to preserve it is for people to enyoy, enjoying it also means that it comes with some costs like polution, harming animals, and other bad things. So I think to preserve is better!! Long live national parks! :)

Both. To let future people enjoy the parks, but we need to enjoy them too.

It's best to do both, because I want to enjoy them, and I want them preserved for my children to see what I saw.

I think its important to enjoy and preserve National Parks and Monuments. You should preserve them because some of them like Mesa Verde NP should be preserved because who knows how long the ruins will still stand and lots of people want to see them. And I think that its important to enjoy them because why go to a National Park like Yellowstone and not enjoy it because you may only go there once in your whole entire life so enjoy it while you can! :)

I think the preserving of parks,and histroical monuments can help teach generations younger then ours about the things that have helped make our lives.History is important for everything, olympics, technology,and religon. PLEASE PRESERVE HISTORY!!!!!! :)

I think it is more important to preserve our parks. If we only allow people to enjoy the parks without preservation, the parks' natural beauty will be diminished.

It goes hand in hand, if they are not preserved they may no be as enjoyable. But if I had tochoose, it is most important to preserve

I think it is more important to Preserve the parks.I think it is more important to preserve Because if you preserve the parks,people can enjoy them.

Preserve because they are part of history and when they are preserved more people can enjoy them.

I think each is very important.

preserve them ; so people can enjoy them for a long long long time , so I SAY PROTECT NATIONAL PARK AND PRESERVE THEM
Posted By: Condor9
I think both are right because if you don't preserve them you cannot enjoy them
Posted By: Elliee
preserve because even though enjoying them is awesome, if the main point of NPS was for enjoyment, then the preservation wouldnt matter at all so theyd become trashed and polluted
Posted By: Karen gillan
preserve them i think because if we dont preserve we cant enjoy them
Posted By: AGZ
enjoyment through conservation is a better answer, conservation ensures that the park is well managed and incidents such as wildfires are managed appropriately. Protecting National Parks, Monuments, etc. should be of utmost importance, even more so than the enjoyment of world citizens.

I think to reserve them is more important because if we don't, then all the wildliffe dies out and the National Park is no longer special . Also, I like animals, so I want them to be protected.
Posted By: Titan Ranger
I think both are important.

Preserve.I think that because you can't possibly ENJOY something that hasn't been preserved and well taken care of.
Posted By: @DestnyBoo*
Posted By: Kiwi Yost
yes. just because.
Posted By: Zipcodee
You have to preserve them and then you can enjoy them. If you can't take care of it, the park is gone!!
Posted By: Ktala D
I think it is more important to preserve them. Then you can help future kids enjoy them too. Preserve and enjoy!

I think it is good for people to enjoy and take care of national areas that need to be preserved, but I don't like the fact that some people have imbellished that to the piont that in some parks animals have now been consider “very important “ . Animals shouldn't have more importantance than people. Our funds and donation in my opionon should go to help find the cure to cancer, find the cure for the common cold, and help people in general instead looking for animals who might need our help. It's good to perserve buildings and artifacts, but it is not good to always be thinking of animals instead of thinking of a way you could help people
Posted By: MelvinTimberleg
Both! We want to use them now and save them for others in the future.
Posted By: DiamondDRanger
I think it's more important to preserve parks because then we can enjoy them and if we don't preserve them other people don't get a chance to enjoy the parks.

preserve because some people would enjoy them by hunting the animals.

to preserve the parks, because when you get older and have kids you want to share the sights with them so you can preserve the parks so you let other people see the park.
Posted By: Pug101
both because their important
Posted By: Naturelover2
The two things do not have to be separated. We can do both. Enjoying the parks helps people understand how to preserve them. They are equal.
