In 2002, the United Nations proclaimed the Western Port region in Victoria, Australia, a UNESCO biosphere reserve.
Western Port was chosen because it has outstanding natural values, including a Ramsar wetland of international importance, on the fringe of the expanding city of Melbourne.
Biosphere reserves aim to keep special places—like Western Port—special by fostering conservation and sustainable development. More
