Biosphere reserves are regions of global ecological significance that make an ongoing commitment to the United Nations to strive for sustainability. They are places where people are inspired to find ways to live and work in harmony with nature. This series explains what is happening in Canada’s biosphere reserves – the successes and the challenges of people determined to create a sustainable future for their communities. Come with us on a coast to coast journey spanning thousands of years to find out what makes them special, from geological, ecological, historical and cultural perspectives. We’ll also investigate the reserves as living laboratories by joining academics, citizen scientists and indigenous knowledge-keepers in their research to create a more sustainable future for both Canadians and the environments in which we live.
