Welcome to the International Conservation Society's Conservation & Ecotourism in America (The USA) page.

 

We Americans tend to take the rich diversity of species and biome in our country for granted. Most foreigners, however, are in awe of this crowning aspect of America. From the Everglades to the evergreen forests of the Pacific Northwest, from the wetlands to the Southwestern Desert, from the Rocky mountains to the ring of fire reefs, volcanoes and waterfalls of Hawaii, etc., we truly have one of the richest and most diverse environmental heritages.

 

Species range from the bullfrog to the Bull Moose, from the horned toad to the bighorn sheep, from the kingfisher to the king crab, and enough others to fill volumes. For more information about the biodiversity of American wildlife and how you can preserve them, click the conservation links below.
