Biosphere reserves are areas of terrestrial and coastal/marine ecosystems where, through appropriate zoning patterns and land management, the conservation of ecosystems and their biodiversity is combined with the sustainable use of natural resources for the benefit of local communities. The core area of the reserve is a marine zone. the Hara biosphere reserve is located in the Mehran River delta in the south of Iran. It is situated near the Straits of Khuran between Queshm Island and the Persian Gulf. is found in the coastal waters of the reserve. The Strait of Khuran, in which the reserve is located, is a Ramsar site.
et (terrestrial, coastal and marine) in which genetic re-sources would be protected, and where research, moni-toring and training work could be carried out, named as “Biosphere Reserves” (BRs). These are nominated by national governments and remain under the . Biosphere reserves include three levels of protected zones: core (most highly protected), buffer (less protected), and transition (least protected). Although a number of marine biosphere reserves have been established, successful application of the concept has thus far been limited to a few sites such as the Great Barrier Reef.

A Biosphere Reserve is voluntary, co-operative, conservation area created to protect the biological and cultural diversity of a region while promoting sustainable economic development. It provides an opportunity to scientists and managers to experiment and co-operate in generating data for understanding man’s impact on nature.

Stakeholder participation and collaboration, governance, finance and resources, management, and awareness and communication are the most influential factors in the success or failure of the biosphere reserves.
