Alaska is home to over half (60%) of the acreage of the National Park System and some of the most spectacular and remote natural places in the country.

Understanding, protecting, and sharing with the public these 54 million acres are important to the National Park Service's mission to preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.

An exceptionally talented team of scientists, specialists, and program managers across natural resource disciplines and in inventory and monitoring networks provide science, policy, and technical program assistance for Alaska's national parks and external partners.
