The entire Jeju island will be designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the Jeju provincial government said on Aug. 13.

Designated back in December 2002, Jeju’s UNESCO Biosphere Reserve currently covers about 44 percent of the island’s surface area including Mt. Halla, Seop-seom, Beom-seom and Mun-seom. Jeju officials plan to expand the island’s biosphere reserve this time to cover 100 percent of the island’s surface.

UNESCO selects biosphere reserve on the land, shore and the ocean throughout the world to preserve their excellent biodiversity as well as to look for ways to develop them in a sustainable fashion.
