Peru creates park that’s larger than Yellowstone and Yosemite combined

Global Business

Peru has created a brand new national park called Sierra del Divisor, which is larger than Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks combined in the United States.

Government said the park will combat climate change and join with its Brazilian counterpart across the border to form one of the largest continuous blocks of protected land in the Amazon.

At a time of declining wild spaces, it will be one of the globe’s last strongholds for wildlife and indigenous peoples.
