What’s a bioregion? A bioregion is “a distinct area with coherent and interconnected plant and animal communities, and natural systems, often defined by a watershed. A bioregion is a whole ‘life-place’ with unique requirements for human inhabitation so that it will not be disrupted and injured”
Founded in 1973, Planet Drum Foundation uses a grassroots approach to ecology that focuses on community self-determination, sustainability, and regional self-reliance. PDF coined the term “bioregion” and defined the philosophy of “bioregionalism” to emphasize the relationship between humans and the areas they live within.
