A seminar to discuss the ecological traditions in Rajasthan (India) was organized jointly by the Project KRAPAVIS and CPREEC, on 20th March 2013. In the seminar, different topics like sacred groves (Orans), sacred water bodies, sacred animals, sacred rivers, sacred mountains, sacred sites/ sacred gardens etc. were covered by 10 distinguished researchers.   In Rajasthan, these age old practices are responsible for sustainable resource management by the communities. The goal of the  seminar  was to bring different organizations and individuals from the state that  are working on sacred traditions, Orans, Devbanis and to deliberate on the role these rich traditions play today and how best they could be used to communities’ advantage while safeguarding culture and biodiversity.
