Guest of GEO with Emanuele Biggi
Alessandro was guest of nature television program Geo on Italian public broadcasting channel Rai3 on 14 May. The show was conducted by Emanuele Biggi (www.anura.it) who has photographed fieldwork we conduct in Peru on multiple occasions (many of these photos were shown during the program). The interview (available here or on Rai Replay until 21 May) focused on amphibian biodiversity, threats and conservation.
