The Island's Biosphere status plays an important role in enhancing its tourism offering.
As part of Visit Isle of Man’s commitment to Biosphere, it will welcome UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man to its northern drop-in and networking session on the 21st November from 2pm to 7pm, at Brightlife, Andreas.
Contributions to sustainability were recognised at inaugural UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man Awards.
UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man helped Beach Buddies to celebrate a significant milestone last week.
In the morning, (10.30am) children will make bird feeders and use up waste plastic in creative ways for wildlife. In the afternoon (1.30pm), adults will learn to ditch plastic by making beeswax wraps, microplastic-free cosmetics and air fresheners.
What does it mean to be a small Island Biosphere Reserve in the context of climate change, environmental degradation and a world in flux?
Simon’s talk is richly illustrated by his photographs and films. You will learn how to bridge the gap between the wild world and your own. Simon shares his unique, first- hand knowledge on animal tracks and signs, mimicry and observation skills, peppered with stories of wild encounters from the UK and beyond. There will be a Q&A session at the end of his talk.
