Sacred Natural Sites

Sacred Natural Sites

Some indigenous people have such a close relationship to their sacred natural sites that the deterioration or destruction of those sites threatens their very existence. In addition, sacred natural sites related to indigenous and local communities are, in general, more vulnerable and more threatened than sacred natural sites associated with mainstream faiths.
