"Biosphere Foundation’s (BF) primary goal is to inspire intelligent stewardship of our earth’s biosphere. Its projects aim to contribute to the existing body of knowledge about the biosphere and to inspire individuals to get involved through either “hands-on” fieldwork or community-based outreach programs."
