The Evidence Champions: Others

Introduction

As well as working on specific projects with practitioners and funders, we also work with software developers, databases, educators and others to spread the word about Conservation Evidence and evidence-based practice.

British Trust for Ornithology 

The British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) is an independent charitable research institute combining professional and citizen science to monitor British wildlife, especially birds. Their long-term monitoring data on the status of UK birds sets the standard worldwide for understanding the effects of environmental change on wildlife, and is used by both governments and NGOs.

The BTO BirdFacts pages link through to the Conservation Evidence database. 

The Cool Farm Alliance

The Cool Farm Alliance aims to help millions of growers globally to make more informed on-farm decisions that reduce their environmental impact. Their Cool Farm Tool helps to calculate the impacts of farm level decisions on greenhouse gas emissions, water use, and biodiversity.

The scoring for the biodiversity component of their Cool Farm Tool is based on the Farmland Synopsis by Conservation Evidence.

IUCN RedList

The International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species is the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global conservation status of animal, fungi and plant species.

For every species on the IUCN Red List, the Red List displays both individual studies and actions taken to conserve that species which have been compiled at Conservation Evidence, with links through to our site. If no information is available for a species, it displays the evidence for that family instead.

The NBN Atlas

The NBN Atlas is a free online tool bringing together multiple sources of information about UK species and habitats. It aims to facilitate learning about and understanding the UK’s wildlife.

The New Zealand Sustainability Dashboard

The New Zealand Sustainability Dashboard aims to significantly enhance sustainability assessment and reporting in NZ's agricultural sector. A six year research programme involving ten organisation, they are developing a New Zealand specific version of the Cool Farm Tool.

As for the Cool Farm Tool, the scoring for the farmland biodiversity assessment tool will be based on the Conservation Evidence Farmland Synopsis.

UNEP-Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds

UNEP-AEWA is an intergovernmental treaty to conserve 254 migratory waterbird species and their habitats across Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, Greenland and the Canadian Archipelago. It was developed under the framework of the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS), and is administered by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

What Works in Conservation

What Works in Conservation provides expert assessments of the effectiveness of actions, based on summarised evidence, in synopses. Subjects covered so far include amphibians, birds, terrestrial mammals, forests, peatland and control of freshwater invasive species. More are in progress.
