Protection of terrestrial flora and fauna
Terrestrial ecosystems are vital habitat for millions of species, and the services they provide are invaluable, including air filtration, the water cycle, health and well-being, and reservoirs of biodiversity. Their contributions are essential to us and our very survival.
While ecosystems are deteriorating at an ever-faster pace through desertification, expansion of cultivated land and urbanisation, biosphere reserves seek to conserve them.
