Protecting National Parks

The Section has used the Park System Resource Protection Act (PSRPA) to recover damages for injuries to important national parks, including Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain National Park, Biscayne, Everglades, and the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The recoveries have provided funding to restore sea grass beds damaged by vessel groundings, reconstruct park buildings damaged by fire or collision, and re-vegetate other sensitive areas damaged by human activities.
