The Isle of Wight has just been crowned a Unesco Biosphere Reserve, making it the seventh UK destination to be awarded the special status.
The designation recognises our island home as one of the best areas in the world for managed landscapes and as a place where human impact doesn't detract from the natural beauty or wildlife.
The Reserve status covers the entire Isle of Wight and its inshore waters which include parts of the Solent – the body of water that separates the island from mainland England.
We’re absolutely bowled over to be a company working on environmental issues from a world Biosphere Reserve and to have been a part of the bid process to Unesco.
It’s the first time in seven years that an English area has received the accolade, and this win highlights the Isle of Wight’s unique combination of wild habitat, managed countryside, towns and villages and the people who live in them.
