Biosphere reserves are areas designated by UNESCO to serve as models for demonstrating a balanced relationship between humans and the biosphere. One of the requirements for designation of a biosphere reserve is that the proposed area must contain a legally protected core area, such as a park or wilderness reserve. Fundy National Park serves as the core area for the Fundy Biosphere Reserve.
What does it mean to be a Dark-Sky Preserve? It means that the Fundy National Park is one of the best places to explore the night sky in Canada. One can think of a dark-sky preserve as an astronomy park where the night sky glows with millions of stars visible to the naked eye.
