Brighton & Lewes Biosphere Reserve












A biosphere means that this area has recently been listed by the United Nations as an “outstanding natural landscape” with varied habitats.  Brighton and Lewes Downs Biosphere is one of six biosphere reserves in the UK. It covers 400 sq km of land and sea between the River Adur and the River Ouse. The idea is to bring together the three environments of the countryside, the coast, and the places where people live.
