Noosa Community Biosphere Association Inc.

Our Noosa Biosphere is an important part of the lives of all residents and visitors to this region.

So, what is a Biosphere?

It is an area comprised of terrestrial, marine and coastal ecosystems in which the local community has managed to combine both conservation and the sustainable use of natural resources.

The Noosa biosphere was recognised by UNESCO in 2007 under the Man and the Biosphere program. One of 14 biospheres in Australia, and one of only 600 biospheres worldwide.

The Noosa Biosphere Reserve is a special place because of it’s natural environment and it’s community who have worked to protect it and strived to maintain it’s natural, healthy state for generations to come.

The biosphere reserves are established to promote a balanced relationship between humans and the environment. The Noosa biosphere is one of 14 in Australia.

With modern pressures, living within our natural environment and preserving this natural environment does not just happen. It takes hard work to find the balance between conservation of the environment and maintaining sustainable economic development.

The NCBA is working with the community to make our biosphere a celebration of our people, our places, our future.

The Noosa Community Biosphere Association is a not for profit advocacy group promoting innovative approaches to economic development that are socially, culturally appropriate & environmentally sustainable.
