What works in conservation?
Clare Wordley, University of Cambridge and Conservation Evidence
What works in conservation? That’s a question we ask ourselves every day at www.conservationevidence.com. We’re working on a hugely ambitious project to collect together all the scientific evidence for whether or not conservation actions have worked, for all species, and all habitats, everywhere in the world!
Our aim is to provide a resource for busy conservationists, so that they can make decisions based on the best available science – making conservation more effective! We also run a journal where conservationists can share their successes and failures, to help the conservation community learn from each other.
