The Long Point Biosphere Reserve is an area of global ecological significance that makes an ongoing commitment to the United Nations to strive for sustainability. Visitors and residents are inspired to coexist in harmony with nature.
It is located in Norfolk County, on the north shore of Lake Erie in the heart of Carolinian Canada.
Hosting more endangered species per-capita than the rest of Canada, it is home to the greatest number of plants and animals and the highest densities of wildlife in all of Canada.
