Our Communities 


The intent of the Fundy Biosphere Reserve is to provide a forum for dialogue and information, and sharing this information between communities, resource sectors, government agencies and researchers. This cooperative network of partners aims to assist communities in developing a more sustainable way of life based on a common understanding that a healthy economy can only be supported by a healthy environment.

The Fundy Biosphere Reserve works with its communities to achieve or enhance:

  • An acceptable standard of living in a healthy environment;
  • Greater economic self-sufficiency and self-determination through capacity building;
  • Linkages to the wider regional, national, and international sustainable economic development initiatives;
  • Capacity and leadership that enables communities to monitor change and to participate in resource management decisions making.
