UNESCO Biosphere Reserves are places that are chosen for their outstanding natural and cultural character and recognised as places where local communities have an aspiration to live sustainably within their local ecosystems. This is a global designation and apparently, our lovely lil Island shows pretty good examples of this! In 2019, the Isle of Wight was awarded Biosphere Reserve status by the international coordinating council of UNESCO’s Man and Biosphere Programme. There are 700 Biosphere Reserves worldwide but only 7 in the UK!
