Julian Alps to become cross-border biosphere area

By: J.S.,STA

Slovenia’s Triglav National Park and Italy’s Prealpi Giulie Nature Park have launched a bid to have the Julian Alps declared as a single trans-boundary UNESCO MAB Biosphere Reserve to manage it together.

The Slovenian Julian Alps biosphere reserve was designated as early as 2003 as the first such reserve in the country. After the Prealpi Giulie Regional Nature Park took the same step a few years ago, the two parks now seek the trans-boundary Julian Alps Man and Biosphere (MAB) Reserve designation.
