The UNESCO Biosphere Reserve "Oberlausitzer Heide- & Teichlandschaft"

What is a biosphere reserve?

The term is taken from the Greek “biosphere”, meaning “living space”. This refers to all space where life can exist on our Earth. The “Biosphere Reserves” are designated areas in this living space that require special protection by people.

These nature reserves, found throughout the world, comprise the foundation of a UNESCO network called “MAN AND BIOSPHERE” (MAB).  The primary objective of biosphere reserves is to demonstrate how human work and economic activity can be carried out in harmony with the environment
