This week marks the National Park Service’s 100th birthday, and for The Verge it’s an opportunity to explore spacious skies and majestic mountains. Preservation and conservation don’t begin and end with parks, but this timely anniversary got us thinking about wilderness and all the wild things happening in it around the world. We're going to look at ways modern human beings can enjoy nature best, and at some of the challenges facing Earth's most precious spaces over the next century.
