Participants had the exclusive chance to explore Latvia's first Red Book and gain insights into species protection within the country, as well as the development process of the new Red Book.

Moreover, attendees had the opportunity to test their understanding of species protection in Latvia by participating in the quiz: “How Much Do You Know About Rare and Endangered Species?”

Youngest nature enthusiasts were fully engaged in crafting masks of protected species, along with activities involving coloring, gluing, and puzzle solving.
