What is a biosphere reserve?

A biosphere reserve is an international model area for sustainable social development. The initiatives carried out are to encourage nature conservation, social development and research and education. The word BIOSPHERE means all living things on the planet and the environment in which they live. It could also be described as a “living space”. A biosphere reserve is to describe the interaction between mankind and our surroundings.
