Waterton National Park covers an area of 526 square kilometers and Glacier National Park is 4,051 square kilometers. The Lewis Mountains pass through them, including many typical glacial lakes, beautiful mountain scenery and rich animal and plant resources. The peaks in the park are more than 10,000 feet, including nearly 50 glaciers, many lakes and streams.
Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta merged with Glacier National Park in Montana to form W Waterton- Glacier International Peace Park.
The purpose of this is not only to promote friendly relations between the two countries and to share the benefits that will arise between the two countries, but also to emphasize the internationalization of pristine natural environments and the necessary cooperation to protect these pristine natural environments.
Plant and animal species are diverse and naturally breed many large mammalian carnivores such as wolves, bears and lions. Woodton National Park is the only natural habitat for wolves, bears and lions in the contiguous 48 states. There are many wild flowers, animals and plants in the park, including goats and vultures with big horns. The park has been declared a biological reserve. Because it is a typical example of a geographical process, it contains incomparable natural phenomena, and is rich in information and natural beauty.
Waterton National Park is inscribed on the World Heritage List. Waterton Glacier International Peace Park is located in the narrowest part of the Rocky Mountains and straddles the border between the United States and Canada. In order to prove the creed that natural resources have no borders, there is no boundary line between the two countries in this area. The natural ecological environment of these two national parks deserves careful protection. There are mountains and deep valleys, forest belts and grasslands, and deep icebergs and trough-shaped rivers and lakes that flow into the three oceans.
In fact, it is very rare that so many different ecological environments are concentrated in one area like this. And, the rapid rise in terrain, from the gentle grasslands to the Rocky Mountains, has made this national park a place where “mountains meet grasslands.” The distribution of wildlife here also corresponds to the differences in geographical features, with goats, argali, sheep, mountain dogs, grizzly bears, bears, more than two dozen species of birds and the famous “international” elk population, which once a year It migrates from place to place, roosting in the mountains of Glacier National Park in summer and returning to the grasslands of Waterton in winter. The area was inhabited by Aboriginal people 12,000 years ago, and today the national park retains reservations that are significant to the country that first appeared here.
