Nature Reserve

A nature reserve (natural reserve, nature preserve, natural preserve, bioreserve) is a protected area of importance for wildlife, flora, fauna or features of geological or other special interest, which is reserved and managed for conservation and to provide special opportunities for study or research.

Nature reserves fall into different IUCN categories depending on the level of protection afforded by local laws.

Famous quotes containing the words reserve and/or nature:

    I understood that all the material of a literary work was in my past life, I understood that I had acquired it in the midst of frivolous amusements, in idleness, in tenderness and in pain, stored up by me without my divining its destination or even its survival, as the seed has in reserve all the ingredients which will nourish the plant.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    A cheerful intelligent face is the end of culture, and success enough. For it indicates the purpose of Nature and wisdom attained.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
