There is a growing demand for evidence-based solutions to environmental challenges. We invite you to join us in our pursuit for effective conservation.

There are a range of ways you, or your organisation, can collaborate with us.

Please register your interest for any of the opportunities below using our online forms.

Organisations

Gather evidence from grey literature

We are searching for evidence from sources such as reports (sometimes referred to as ‘grey literature’). Does your organisation produce reports? Would you like your reports to be included in our evidence? Register interest here.

Use Conservation Evidence in your work 

Evidence Champions are organisations that have agreed to use Conservation Evidence to check the evidence before making a decision and embed Conservation Evidence in their decision-making processes.

Funders can ask for applicants to describe their project in relation to the evidence on conservationevidence.com in their grant applications to assess how evidence-based the applicant's approach is.

Organisations can commit to test and publish results on the effectiveness of conservation actions.

Journals can ask authors publishing papers testing conservation interventions to check and discuss the existing literature collated by Conservation Evidence in their paper.

We offer many benefits for Evidence Champions, including free training. Register interest by contacting Harriet Downey at hd438@cam.ac.uk
