Conservation Effectiveness


Conservation Effectiveness is a multi-part series investigating whether conservation strategies work or not. The series is the result of a collaboration between Mongabay staff reporters Shreya Dasgupta and Mike Gaworecki, and a team of conservation scientists led by tropical forest ecologist Zuzana Burivalova from Princeton University.

This page includes detailed methodology we’ve used, references to all studies included in the stories and links to downloadable data for each conservation strategy.
