Mammoth Cave not only is home to these species but the people in charge of the cave are preserving these species and the cave itself.

Acadia National Park, Maine. This park sits in between the sea and land and has one of the most beautiful views. Acadia is famous to birdwatchers. The rare peregrine falcon can be seen lurking around and flying over the coast line from time to time which is a rare moment to see.
