Visualizing the Effectiveness of Conservation Strategies

How do you solve a conservation problem? The answer to this question is, as might be expected, not straightforward. But conservationists do need to make decisions. Easily accessing the available evidence on what has worked where is crucial - just as it is important to be able to see what has not worked so well. Conservation Effectiveness is an ongoing science-journalism initiative focused on investigating which conservation strategies work or not. To start exploring the evidence, click on one of the strategies below. You can find in-depth stories about each conservation strategy as well as the detailed methodology on assembling the evidence here.

Conservation Effectiveness is a collaboration between the leading conservation and environmental science news outlet Mongabay.com and a team of conservation scientists led by tropical forest ecologist and conservation scientist Zuzana Burivalova.
