Unesco Biosphere status for Isle of Man

Unesco Isle of Man

The Isle of Man has been recognised as one of the best places in the world to live, work and explore nature.

This high profile accolade has been given by the well know and highly respected world heritage body Unesco which has granted the the entire Isle of Man a Biosphere Reserve. This makes the Isle of Man the first entire country in the world to hold this unique status!

The Isle of Man is a truly unique place. Nowhere are you more than a few miles away from stunning coastlines and countryside. It has a proud heritage and a vibrant cultural life. The community of the island is very close-knit, safe and  is where people look out for each other. The Isle of Man also has a diverse and robust modern economy. The island is heavily involved in working on a wide range of environmental and social projects that are helping to keep the Isle of Man a very special place.

The Isle of Man is blessed with a stunning coastline and has its very own territorial seas all containing a wide and diverse abundance of marine and coastal wildlife. The Isle of Man fishing industry works closely with other users of the sea to ensure that the fishery is managed in a sustainable and long term fashion.
