The Directors of the Giant’s Rib Discovery Centre formed a Committee of the Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere Reserve. Their basic responsibilities were directed to helping ensure that the Niagara Escarpment continues to meet the three basic criteria of a biosphere reserve:
Contribute to conservation of landscapes, ecosystems, species and genetic variation;
Foster economic and human development which is socio-culturally and ecologically sustainable;
Provide support for research, monitoring, education and information exchange related to local national and global issues of conservation and development.
We strove to attain these goals through public education programs and the operation of Discovery Centres along the Niagara Escarpment.
