Evaluation of the Risk of Extinction of Crustaceans Species – CEPSUL/ICMBio

The Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation is the Brazilian Federal Agency responsible for promoting the conservation of Brazilian biodiversity and one of its tasks is the assessment of the risk of extinction of native species.

For this evaluation we adopted the IUCN Criteria and Categories. In 2016 129 marine species of crustaceans will be assessed. In order to assess the risk of extinction of all these species from the best available data, the participation of researchers, managers and fishermen are essential. The list with the species names and access to forms for gathering information are available at CEPSUL webpage at: http://www.icmbio.gov.br/cepsul/especies-ameacadas.html

Contributions can be made until the 30th of September.
