Gyeonggi Province Holds Photography Contest for Gwangneung Forest Biosphere Reserve

The Gwangneung Royal Tomb, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, was strictly managed as a royal forest of King Sejo, the seventh king of the Joseon Dynasty, and Queen Jeonghee. After the invasion of Korea in 1911, Gwangneung was incorporated into Grade-A Indispensable Forest Land for preservation and today is known as Gwangneung Forest.

Gwangneung Forest, an ecologically important and well-preserved forest that has remained intact for over 550 years, stands as an example of a temperate broadleaf forest that is rarely found in northern temperate regions around the world. In fact, Gwangneung Forest is home to a variety of flora ranging from young trees to aged trees. In addition, with the largest number of species per unit area in Korea – a total of 6,251 – Gwangneung Forest is a treasure trove of thriving biodiversity.

Based on these ecological characteristics, Gwangneung Forest was designated as a Biosphere Reserve in line with UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme on June 2, 2010, and the forest has since been recognized for its importance worldwide.

In order to promote the value Gwangneung Forest, where nature and people coexist, Gyeonggi Province will be holding the “1st Gwangneung Forest Biosphere Reserve Photography Contest."
