Noosa Biosphere News
UNESCO has given the Noosa Biosphere Reserve a new global 10-year tick of approval!
Noosa Shire was designated a globally recognised Biosphere Reserve in 2007 by UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere program – there are 701 reserves in 124 countries and
Noosa was Queensland’s first biosphere designation.
A Biosphere Reserve is an area with a balanced relationship between nature and people.
The Advisory Committee acknowledged Noosa’s efforts to manage tourism, restoration of fish in the river, focus on koala populations, the Zero Emissions Noosa objective, and management of feral animals that present major threats to biodiversity conservation.
Great work Noosa!
