Asian sacred natural sites

Complete Title: 
Asian sacred natural sites : philosophy and practice in protected areas and conservation
Non IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Nature conservation planning tends to be driven by models based on Western norms and science, but these may not represent the cultural, philosophical and religious contexts of much of Asia. This book provides a new perspective on the topic of sacred natural sites and cultural heritage by linking Asian cultures, religions and worldviews with contemporary conservation practices and approaches.
