Sacred Natural Sites Conserving Nature and Culture Edited by Bas Verschuuren, Robert Wild, Jeffrey McNeely and Gonzalo Oviedo
This book illustrates that sacred natural sites – the world's oldest protected places – although often under threat, exist within and outside formally recognised protected areas and heritage sites. They may well be some of the last strongholds for building resilient networks of connected landscapes as well as forming important nodes for maintaining a dynamic cultural fabric in the face of global change. The diverse authors bridge the gap between approaches to the conservation of cultural and biological diversity by taking into account cultural and spiritual values together with the socio-economic interests of the custodian communities and other relevant stakeholders.
You also may be interested in other books we have published recently on the relationship between natural resources and cultural values. Nature's Spectacleconsiders the place of national parks, their character and significance, and the larger context in which they developed. Nature and Cultureinvestigates the bridges linking biological and cultural diversity and shows thatany hope for saving biological diversity is predicated on an effort to appreciate and protect cultural diversity.
