Are you passionate about nature? Are you worried about how your environment or the places you have known since your childhood are being modified? Do you like photography? You can now participate in the Third IUCN Red List of Ecosystems Photo Contest - Ecosystems at the Crossroads.

In November 2015, the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems (RLE) team gathered in Melbourne, Australia, along with a global team of experts in ecosystem conservation, biodiversity policy and conservation action. The meeting was hosted by Deakin University, and was co-funded by Deakin, the IUCN, MAVA Foundation, and the State Government of Victoria. The objective of the meeting was to build a strategic plan for rolling out the IUCN RLE globally, to ensure adequate support and capacity for robust risk assessment and high quality outcomes.
The costs and benefits of the Red List of Ecosystems were evaluated during the Eye on Earth Summit held on October 6th- 8th, 2015 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, as part of the global challenge of increasing the information access in order to promote global sustainable development.
