    In this New Year’s episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill details a number of sacred places around the globe--on islands, along the shore, on the banks of rivers, lakes and streams--and the allies that these spaces have found in protective movements, enforcement, and international action. He outlines the relationship of biodiverse regions around the world to their sacred and scientific importance, and how conservation justifies protection while simultaneously meeting the goals of religionists and conservationists alike.
