Building Constituency for Conservation and Sustainability in Waterton Biosphere Reserve

Residents of Waterton Biosphere Reserve (WBR) have been working together for more than 30 years to balance biodiversity conservation with sustainable use of the land in southwestern Alberta. A strong local constituency, with shared ideas and motivation for collaborative action is what makes biosphere reserves unique and will ensure the long term success and survival of WBR and the benefits that it brings to the citizens of southwestern Alberta. This project will work to build that constituency for conservation and sustainability.
