3rd Inspire4Nature Training Session

The 3rd Training Session – “Theory and practice of assessing species extinction risk” – trained fellows on the process of assessing species’ risk of extinction using the IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria.

The fellows first learned about the key concepts, categories and criteria in a IUCN Red List Assessor Training Workshop. They then applied their new knowledge and stills by participating in the IUCN Red List Assessment of Southern European Freshwater Fishes workshop, supporting experts in freshwater fishes coming from across Europe.

The training session was co-organised by the Museum für Naturkunde – Leibniz Institute for Evolution and Biodiversity Science and Sapienza Università di Roma. It took place from the 18-24 Septembre 2019 in the beautiful Zoology building of Sapienza, in Rome.
