Our mission

Conservation Evidence is a free, authoritative information resource designed to support decisions about how to maintain and restore global biodiversity.

We summarise evidence from the scientific literature about the effects of conservation interventions, such as methods of habitat or species management.

We also publish new evidence in our online journal Conservation Evidence.

Why not search the database of summaries of over 4,300 papers that determine the consequences of interventions? Why not look at our synopses that summarise all the research looking at whether interventions are beneficial? Current synopses cover topics such as amphibians, bats, European farmland, enhancing soil fertility and control of freshwater invasive species. More are available and in progress.
