The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designated eastern Georgian Bay and the 30,000 Islands as a world biosphere reserve in 2004. Stretching 200 kilometres from the Severn River to the French River, it contains the world’s largest freshwater archipelago, as well as habitat for many species at risk. There are currently 18 biosphere reserves in Canada and more than 600 worldwide.

The Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve (GBBR) is a registered charity that works to protect the environment, create vibrant communities and support a healthy economy. Working with many partners across the region, the GBBR relies on grants, members and donations to achieve its mandate of conservation, education and sustainable development.

The GBBR is situated in the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
