Game Sanctuaries or National Parks

The well-known national parks in the United States and Canada are often quoted as examples to be followed elsewhere. It is true that on a far smaller scale both national park and fauna (and flora) sanctuaries can be formed—even in the small island of Great Britain ; and evidence shows that steps are being taken to give effect to so desirable an object.
