“Despite a critical need for empirical evidence, conservation science has been slow to adopt these impact evaluation designs.”
– Baylis et al., 2015
Wildlife Impact addresses the need for evaluation by conducting independent evidence-based analyses of the conservation and welfare impacts of projects in developing countries. We provide individuals and organizations with the valuable strategic planning tools, capacity development and support systems they need to evaluate impacts, guide application of best practices, and improve success. Along with regular review of Wildlife Impact’s operations and reporting on conservation results across our networks, these services will support learning and improve transparency and accountability of conservation actions and investment.
Our Impact Evaluation Program
Wildlife Impact offers various levels of analysis dependent on the needs of the applicant and availability of relevant data. Indicators and measurements are based on best practice evaluation criteria including Open Standards for Conservation and other emerging systems.

Rates for Impact Evaluation
Evaluation fees defray some of the evaluation costs. Fees are on a sliding scale determined by an applicant’s previous fiscal year total expenditures and the scope of the project or organization. All fees are non-refundable. Applicant pays all costs for the evaluator’s travel and food/lodging on site. Every effort is made to minimize travel costs. There are no membership or annual dues. Wildlife Impact will provide assistance for applicants to pursue grant funding to cover the evaluation costs. Wildlife Impact is developing a fund for projects with small budgets to apply for needs-based grants to cover some or all the costs of Impact Evaluation or an Outcome Analysis Framework.
