The unique ecosystem of the Bras d’Or Lake and its watershed was designated as a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Biosphere region in 2011. The designation recognizes the respectful relationship between humans and the rest of the natural environment. Biosphere regions around the world are showcases for best practices related to agriculture, aquaculture and development which minimize environmental impacts; places where people and nature are working in harmony. UNESCO Biospheres promote the relationships among a healthy environment, a healthy society and a healthy economy. The Bras d’Or Lake Biosphere Association (BLBRA) is a group of volunteers focused on promoting a viable future in a special place for generations to come.
