Our business units

To achieve its mission in the best possible way, the MUWBR founded three business units: MU Conseils, a participatory strategy consulting firm; the Uapishka Station, a scientific research and ecotourism facility; and Biosphere, a project development component for environmental and human-based research, education and continuous monitoring. These business units complement each other and sustain themselves in carrying out the functions of a biosphere reserve.
