Noosa Residents Association

Noosa Biosphere Reserve

Mike Taylor, President of the Noosa Shire Residents and Ratepayers Association (NSRRA) said today that the Association's next meeting will have two excellent speakers on different aspects of Biosphere Reserves.

Ben McMullen from the Council will talk about:
• The basics: what is a Biosphere in general and what is the Noosa Biosphere in particular?
• The potential for the Noosa Biosphere to benefit our environment and our economy.  This will include the experience of many other Biospheres presented at the recent Madrid conference
• The next steps.

Jutta Dyrchs-Jansen, a Peregian resident with a strong interest in the environment, has visited the Upper Lusatian Heath and Pond Biosphere in Germany.  Like Noosa, this area is dominated by water and water uses. Jutta will show a 15 minute video and comment on the operation of this Biosphere over the last 11 years - including possible lessons for Noosa.

"The Biosphere presents great opportunities for Noosa" said Mike "and these presentations will enable people to find out more about it".

The NSRRA meeting will be held on Thursday, 10 April at the Leisure Centre, Wallace Park, commencing at 3.00pm.  After the presentations, there will be a question and answer session.  NSRRA members and visitors are most welcome.
