Waterton Biosphere Reserve Association


The CMP is grateful for the support of the Waterton Biosphere Reserve Association(WBRA). The WBRA provides support by hosting the CMP Secretariat, providing related back-office services and occasionally collaborating on implementation of projects as identified by the CMP and relevant to the WBRA’s mandate.

Waterton Biosphere Reserve
Located in the southwestern corner of Alberta, the Waterton Biosphere Reserve [WBR] is one of only 18 biosphere reserves in Canada. The WBR area encompasses some of the most spectacular and ecologically diverse landscapes in the Canadian Rockies and prairie grasslands. Designated in 1979 by UNESCO [United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization], the WBR fosters and encourages a sustainable, community-based regional economy, with quality biodiversity, landscape and social values.
