Combating and curbing climate change is one of today’s great international challenges. The effects of global warming are increasingly evident and reducing them and preventing them from getting worse has become a priority of the IPCC, the UN-linked Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
For this, every little gesture counts, which is why Yellowstone Park wanted to contribute its grain of sand with a new, totally innovative initiative that aims to be a way to preserve the park for future generations.
To celebrate 150 years of Yellowstone National Park, a 9,000 square kilometer natural recreation area perched atop a volcanic hotspot in the northern United States, they are selling passes that will be valid from year 2172 for 1,480 euros.
These tickets are called “Heritage Pass” and are intended for the descendants of the buyers to use them in the future, since their validity will start in 150 years. Of course, also including a courtesy ticket for next year.
This initiative aims to raise funds that will be used to support park projects such as species conservation, science projects, trail improvements and youth education. So that future generations can continue to enjoy this wonder of nature before climate change destroys it.
“150 years from now, the pass will also connect its owner to the past, to those who donated for the continued preservation of the park beyond a lifetime. It will be part of their family’s legacy,” says Lisa Diekmann, President and CEO of Yellowstone Forever.
Yellowstone National Park, located in the states of Wyoming, Idaho and Montana, plays a very important role in the conservation of species and natural resources in this country. For this reason, it is essential to continue to guarantee its conservation for future generations.
