Froglife have been collaborating with Conservation Evidence since its conception, and we are proud to still be working alongside them as an Evidence Champion to this day.
Conservation Evidence (CE) is a free, authoritative information resource designed to support decisions about how to maintain and restore biodiversity. It summarises evidence from the scientific literature about the effects of conservation interventions, such as methods of habitat or species management. They also publish new evidence in their open access journal ‘Conservation Evidence’.
CE aims to break down the barriers between published scientific evidence and practitioners, summarises scientific data for different conservation actions, score those actions for effectiveness, certainty and harms using experts, and maintain a database tool to assist decision making.
Froglife are committed to using the evidence provided by CE in a variety of ways and help to produce tools and guidance for doing so. This includes:
– Making evidence-based decisions
– Experimentally testing and publishing interventions
– Producing evidence-based guidance
– Reviewing and reporting grey literature on interventions
