CRA Statement RE: Dublin Bay Biosphere

24 Jun 2015

Clontarf Residents' Association wholeheartedly welcomes today's decision to name the wider Dublin Bay as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in recognition of the area's unqiue ecosystem. A UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is an area of land dedicated to the conservation of the local ecological habitat.

The North Bull Island was originally designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1981, and the new Biosphere covers over 300km2  of land and includes over 300,000 Dublin residents. The UNESCO Dublin Bay Biosphere Reserve is one of only two biospheres that exist in a capital city. 

We are also delighted to reveal that local digital agency Web Together are behind the official UNESCO Dublin Bay Biosphere website. As some of you already know, Web Together runs the website and have greatly assisted the Association with our online endeavours!

This is truly great news for Dublin, and we look forward to hearing more about the Dublin Bay Biosphere in the weeks to come.
