What Works in Conservation?
Finding out which conservation actions work best can be difficult. If you wanted to know whether to put up artificial nesting sites for owls and which type to use, what time of year to mow your meadow, or how to help mammals safely cross the road, how would you go about it? You could ask lots of people, or try to read scientific papers; but people’s anecdotes can be unreliable, and many academic papers are hidden behind paywalls and tough to read. Alternatively, you could look at the Conservation Evidence database.
