How can you know which ecosystems are at greatest risk and why? And more importantly, what can you do about it? I’m Emily Nicholson, Associate Professor in Conservation Science at Deakin University. I’m one of the original designers of the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems. For over a decade, I’ve worked as part of an international team of passionate scientists, developing the Red List into the Global Standard for Ecosystem Risk Assessment.
