This article briefly describes the success of the knowledge-transfer reform within medicine known as evidence-based medicine. In this field, the idea is that any decision about an intervention, or lack thereof, should be based on the best available knowledge. The current move towards a similar reform within nature conservation is reviewed, and its differences with medicine discussed. If "evidencebased conservation" is broadly accepted among researchers, practitioners and NGOs, it might lead to a more consistent protocol for reporting case studies trying interventions and, in the long run, a more efficient use of limited resources for conservation.
