Imatge The Dublin Bay Biosphere Reserve comprises Dublin Bay, North Bull Island and adjacent land, including parts of Dublin, the capital city of Ireland. It is the only biosphere reserve worldwide which includes within its area a national capital city. The reserve hosts one of the finest sand dune systems in Ireland and is internationally important in terms of its conservation value. There are high quality examples of several rare and threatened coastal habitats such as estuaries; well-developed salt marshes and dune systems displaying all stages of development from the earliest phase of colonization to stable and full maturity; beaches; lagoonal sand flats and lagoonal mud flats. The area is also important for nesting and wintering waterfowls.
