"Serve Others as You would Serve Yourself"            
What is a Biosphere Reserve? A biosphere reserve is a voluntary, cooperative, conservation reserve created to protect the biological  and cultural diversity of a region while promoting sustainable economic development. It is a place of  cooperation, education and experimentation, where scientists and managers can share research data to  better understand man's impact on nature, and where local communities, environmental groups, and  economic interests can work collaboratively on conservation and development issues.  ANOTHER WINNER FOR SOUTH AFRICA!!!! Biosphere reserves are established under the auspices of United Nations Educational, Scientific, and  Cultural Organization (UNESCO).  Why are we telling you this? Well, after nearly a decade of lobbying and sustained efforts by a small  committee of dedicated environmentalists‚ the MAGALIESBERG has been declared a WORLD  BIOSPHERE RESERVE. The announcement was made in Paris by the International Co-ordinating Council of the Programme on  Man and the Biosphere (MAB) on Tuesday‚ according to a statement by the Magaliesberg Biosphere  Initiative Group. "This is a Unesco (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) programme that  aims to build a supportive and sustainable relationship between people and their environments. In  effect‚ this means a specific focus on safeguarding natural ecosystems through innovative approaches  to economic development‚" the group said.  The World Network of Biosphere Reserves‚ which Magaliesberg now joins‚ contains 631 biosphere  reserves in 119 countries. "The Magaliesberg is almost 100 times older than Mount Everest and half  the age of the earth‚ a unique treasure for us in this part of Africa."  The Magaliesberg Biosphere Reserve covers almost 358‚000ha — 58‚000ha make up the core area‚  110‚000ha the buffer area and 190‚000ha the transition area. Besides the range’s unique biomes — the central grassland plateaux and the sub-Saharan savannah — it  has a rich biodiversity. The Aloe peglerae and Frithia pulchra are unique to the area that also has 443  bird species‚ almost half the total bird species of southern Africa.  In its report recommending that the Magaliesberg join the exclusive club of World Biosphere Reserves‚  the International Advisory Committee for Biosphere   Reserves‚ said: "The area is endowed with scenic beauty‚ unique natural features‚ rich cultural  heritage value and archaeological interest with the Cradle of Humankind‚ which is part of the World  Heritage Site with 40-million years of history". Timeshare resorts in this area will be even more attractive to nature lovers.
