The Minett region - officially a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve

The Land of the Red Rocks becomes a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve

Flowering orchids and lush diverse greenery next to old mining sites, earth coloured red by iron ore, a fascinating landscape: welcome to the Minett.

The southern region is characterised by a high level of biodiversity. From now on it can be called Minett UNESCO Biosphere as it is now part of a prestigious international network of more than 700 biosphere reserves in 124 countries, whose quality is officially recognised by the UNESCO Man and Biosphere label.
