Biospheres are places with world-class environments that are designated by the United Nations to promote and demonstrate a balanced relationship between people and nature.

Galloway and South Ayrshire in southern Scotland has now been designated as a new style UNESCO Biosphere because of its unique combination of special landscapes and wildlife areas, rich cultural heritage and communities that care about their environment and culture and want to develop it sustainably.

Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere is the first ‘new style’ Biosphere in Scotland and only the third in the UK.
