"The sixth mass extinction event has already begun. This beautiful planet that we call home with its diversity of species and cultures is worth saving. In fact, we have no other choice if we seek our own survival. To save the places on earth with the greatest biodiversity we must work with the people who live there and have protected their land while living sustainably for millennia. The Cultural Sanctuaries Foundation aims to do this by working with people to create sanctuaries for people and nature. The work of The Cultural Sanctuaries Foundation is important in many ways, including some that we do not yet understand.” Eileen de Ravin, Senior UN consultant and formerly UNDP Equator Initiative manager
