Notes Is there a relationship between cultural and biological diversity? In a world moving towards globalization are these diversities under threat and how can we safeguard them? Can sacred natural sites and associative cultural landscapes play a role in conserving both cultural and biological diversity? These and related questions on the interrelationship between the natural and cultural diversity of our planet were addressed at the international symposium on "Conserving Cultural and Biological Diversity : The Role of Sacred Natural Sites" which took place at the United Nations University (UNU) in Tokyo from 30 May to 2 June 2005. Organized by UNESCO in collaboration with various partner organizations, the symposium provided the floor for presenting case studies on sacred natural sites and cultural landscapes the world over. At the interface of different world views or belief systems and traditional land management schemes, they give testimony to the need for integrated and holistic nature/culture conservation efforts.
