Healthy ecosystems are vital for our well-being and conservationists have an urgent task of keeping threats to ecosystems at bay.

Effective monitoring as part of an integral knowledge management system is essential for being successful in order to understand if conservation actions have an impact.

But conservation projects often fail because of gaps in information, which lead to poor strategies and enforcement. Regardless the common understanding monitoring actions often are not sufficiently implemented. Monitoring & Evaluation is not only key for an impact assessment furthermore it is a way of motivating practitioners for progress tracking and stimulate their learning curve and understanding.

Conservationists should be equipped with robust monitoring tools so that they can effectively manage their sites and adapt in time to various natural and man-made changes.
