Fundy Biosphere Reserve Launches Partnership Program

Posted Tuesday, March 8, 2016

The UNESCO-designated Fundy Biosphere Reserve (FBR) is proud to announce the launch of a Partnership Program, which recognizes businesses and organizations in the region who support the work of the FBR.

“Since obtaining designation from UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve, the Fundy Biosphere Reserve has been working with our local communities to deliver projects in conservation of nature and culture, sustainable development, and capacity building,” says Dr. Yves Gagnon, Chair of the FBR.

To achieve its next phase of development, the FBR is pleased to announce today its 2016 Partners:

“These companies and organizations have shown their support for our work by committing resources, either cash or significant in-kind contributions, to the operations and programs of the FBR,” says Megan de Graaf, Executive Director of the FBR.

“We would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank the above organizations for their commitment to the Fundy Biosphere Reserve, and for supporting work that contributes to protecting the environment, creating vibrant communities, and building a healthy economy,” adds Gagnon.

The FBR continues to seek and accept new partners to join its Partnership Program and help build its core funding. Interested businesses and organizations that focus on people, planet, and profit can find more information at www.fundy-biosphere.ca/en/membership/partnerships.html. There are many different levels of partnership, all of which can help improve the partner’s visibility among residents and visitors to the region who have an interest in its natural and cultural attractions and thus regularly follow the FBR’s communications.

The FBR welcomes anyone who would like to learn more about its projects and activities, as well as its new Partnership Program, to visit its website at fundy-biosphere.ca.
