National Park closest to your location.

Your local newspaper has asked you to write at least a 700-word, two-part article regarding the National Park closest to your location.

Identify the National Park. Describe its location, its general habitats, and briefly describe at least two plants and two animals found within the National park.
Examine how these plants and animals
adapt to their environment within the park versus outside the park in terms of population growth or reduction, as well as speciation.
What is adaptation?
What kinds of factors affect population growth/reduction?
What is speciation? What causes speciation?
Consider the following questions regarding
changes in the National Park as you write your article:

What has changed over the last 10 years? You can investigate temperature, habitat changes, invasive species, accessibility to natural resources, and so on. Have the changes been positive or negative?
How have the animals or plants been affected by the changes?
How has competition for resources affected the change?
