Beyond Belief - Linking faiths and protected areas for biodiversity conservation

03 November 2005 | Downloads - publication

A WWF/ARC publication with special focus on the links between faiths and the world’s growing protected areas network

This publication is, we think, the first to focus specifically on the links between faiths and the world’s growing protected areas network. We support its call for faiths and conservationists to work together to help achieve the world’s vision of halting biodiversity loss. In turn, as representatives of conservation organisations, we pledge to work with faiths in ensuring that when protected areas overlap with sites of spiritual importance, both these values will be taken into account in management. We hope and believe that both faith groups and conservation organisations can benefit from working in partnership to recognise and to protect the natural world, which provides such inspiration to so many.
