RBTGX. Transboundary Biosphere Reserve Gerês-Xurés.
Welcome to the Transboundary Biosphere Reserve Gerês-Xurés
The Transboundary Biosphere Reserve Gerês-Xurés (RBTGX) was declared on May 27, 2009, by UNESCO, and is located in the Autonomous Community of Galicia (Spain) and the North Região (Portugal), covering a total of 267,958 has. of protected land in two areas divided by natural boundaries, yet united by the characteristics of nature and culture.
Being a Transboundary Biosphere Reserve, the cooperative effort between the territory and institutions of both countries, in setting common goals, define priorities for action, and articulate management strategies contribute to consolidate the image of Transboundary Park Gerês-Xurés, created between the Natural Park Serra do Baixa Limia Xurés and Peneda Gerês, established in 1997, forming an environmental unit of high biodiversity.
More than a designation, the Transboundary Biosphere Reserve Gerês-Xurés intended as recognition of the need for a common and coordinated effort to safeguard the values of flora, fauna and landscape, which share the two protected areas, promoting economic development sustainable, and promoting the active participation of stakeholders in the territory by promoting and demonstrating a balanced relationship between people and nature.
