The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has added Huangshan Mountain in East China’s Anhui province to the World Network Biosphere Reserves, Anhui Daily reports on Thursday.

The news was announced at the 30th session of the Man and the Biosphere Programme International Co-ordinating Council.

Man and the Biosphere Programme (MAB) is an intergovernmental scientific programme, launched by UNESCO in 1971, that aims to establish a scientific basis for the improvement of relationships between people and their environments.

Located in the southern part of Anhui province, Huangshan Mountain has been a World Heritage site since 1990 and harbours a forest ecosystem almost unchanged since the last glacial period.

Covering an area of 42,558 hectares, the new biosphere reserve consists of the Huangshan Mountain Scenic Area and 12 neighbouring villages as well as a state-run tree farm with a total population of 24,782.

It is the province’s first and the nation’s 34th site to have been involved in the MAB.

Huangshan Mountain is also the first site in the globe that simultaneously hold three UNESCO titles: a World Heritage site, a World Network Biosphere Reserve and a Global Geopark.
