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.

Use the search box at the top of this page or browse the evidence using the icons above to search the database of over 5,000 papers that determine the effectiveness of conservation interventions.

We also publish new evidence in our open access journal Conservation Evidence.

What Works in Conservation

What Works in Conservation assesses the research looking at whether interventions are beneficial or not. It is based on summarised evidence in synopses, on topics such as amphibians, bats, biodiversity in European farmland, and control of freshwater invasive species. More are available and in progress.
