Terralingua’s magazine Langscape has become a unique venue for promoting understanding and appreciation of biocultural diversity through high-quality text and images. A special issue of Langscape, “Sacred Natural Sites: Sources of Biocultural Diversity”, co-produced with the Sacred Natural Sites Initiative (SNSI) and guest-edited by Bas Verschuuren and Robert Wild, was distributed at the 5th World Conservation Congress. Handsomely designed and illustrated, and printed in full color, this issue contains a wealth of contributions from all over the world. Together, these articles paint a vivid portrait of Sacred Natural Sites, their value and significance, the threats they are undergoing, and the many initiatives underway to protect them.
This issue of Langscape (Vol. 2, Issue 11) was the first one to be disseminated not only in electronic form, but also in printed hardcover magazine format, thanks to our collaborative arrangement with SNSI. It was very well received at the Congress and throughout our network. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can download it here. Or if you’re interested in receiving a printed copy for a minimal cost, please contact the Langscape editor Ortixia Dilts at ortixia [at] terralingua.org .
The next issue of the magazine will be devoted to “emerging paradigms in BCD”, and will be guest-edited by Felipe Montoya Greenheck.
