Yosemite National Park (/joʊˈsɛmɪtɪ/, yoh-SEM-i-tee) is an American national park lying in the western Sierra Nevada of Central California, bounded on the southeast by Sierra National Forest and on the northwest by Stanislaus National Forest. The park, which is managed by the U.S. National Park Service, covers an area of 747,956 acres (1,168.681 sq mi; 302,687 ha; 3,026.87 km2) and sits in four counties: centered in Tuolumne and Mariposa, extending north and east to Mono and south to Madera County. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, Yosemite is internationally recognized for its granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, giant sequoia groves, lakes, mountains, meadows, glaciers, and biological diversity. Almost 95% of the park is designated wilderness.
On average, about 4 million people visit Yosemite each year, and most spend the majority of their time in the 5.9 square miles (15 km2) of Yosemite Valley. The park set a visitation record in 2016, surpassing 5 million visitors for the first time in its history. Yosemite was central to the development of the national park idea. First, Galen Clark and others lobbied to protect Yosemite Valley from development, ultimately leading to President Abraham Lincoln's signing the Yosemite Grant in 1864. Later, John Muir led a successful movement to establish a larger national park encompassing not just the valley, but surrounding mountains and forests as well—paving the way for the U.S. National Park system.
Yosemite is one of the largest and least fragmented habitat blocks in the Sierra Nevada, and the park supports a diversity of plants and animals. The park has an elevation range from 2,127 to 13,114 feet (648 to 3,997 m) and contains five major vegetation zones: chaparral and oak woodland, lower montane forest, upper montane forest, subalpine zone, and alpine. Of California's 7,000 plant species, about 50% occur in the Sierra Nevada and more than 20% within Yosemite. There is suitable habitat for more than 160 rare plants in the park, with rare local geologicformations and unique soils characterizing the restricted ranges many of these plants occupy.
Mount Stanley is a mountain located in the Rwenzori range. With an elevation of 5,109 m (16,763 ft), it is the highest mountain of both the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda, and the third highest in Africa, after Kilimanjaro(5,895 m) and Mount Kenya (5,199 m). The peak and several other surrounding peaks are high enough to support glaciers. Mount Stanley is named for the journalist and explorer, Sir Henry Morton Stanley. It is part of the Rwenzori Mountains National Park, a UNESCO world Heritage Site.

Welcome from the Chairman of the Port Authority
Mr. Enrique Losada Rodríguez
The Port Authority of A Coruña finds itself at one of the most crucial moments of its history. The execution and commissioning of the New Port Facilities in Punta Langosteira has marked a new turning point in the development of our port. We are now presented with the opportunity of becoming one of the great driving forces behind economic progress and the creation of employment in Galicia, a task in which we are working tirelessly, fully aware that many challenges still remain. Activity in the Outer Port, where goods loading and unloading operations have been consolidated, will not only allow us to extend our growth capacity, but also to comply with the principal missions that have driven this project: maritime safety and environmental excellence.
After the complex process of building the facilities and the commissioning thereof in September 2012, our objective is now focus on the transfer of operators and the marketing of Punta Langosteira, with the attraction of new top-level international investors to consolidated us as a hub port for energy products and other goods which are highly relevant in our port, such as agri-food bulks.
With regard to the transfer, we are pleased to confirm the commitment of our large customers with Punta Langosteira. High-profile operators in the port are already handling cargo in their warehouses, and they will soon be followed by other cutting-edge companies operating in A Coruña. With regard to our marketing plan, we are fully focused on negotiating with the principal companies of the great powers of international sea transport.
While we continue making progress in our challenge of attaining maximum economic, industrial and social performance in the Outer Port, we are also continuing to promote traffic in the inner port, where fresh fish is still in the leading positions in the national rankings, and passenger cruiser traffic is booming.
In all our actions, our mission is, and always will be, to provide efficient services, creating opportunities to improve competitiveness and promoting the economic development of the area within the framework of sustainable growth.
To achieve these goals, it is essential to nourish the port-city relationship, which is evident in actions on which we work jointly with A Coruña City Council, such as the urbanisation of the Parrote and La Marina areas, opening up an area of over 50,000 m² for the use of citizens.
Support from institutions, government agencies and bodies committed to the city is the best possible ally in the development of our activity, the fundamental aim of which is the economic and social well-being of our setting.
