Matthew Richardson (born 1966) is a Canadian non-fiction author, vertebrate taxonomist and conservationist. Starting out as an historian, in recent years he has been most closely associated with projects relating to wildlife conservation and, in particular, primatology. He is currently at work on his "Global Survey of Threatened and Recently-Extinct Vertebrates."

In addition to writing, Richardson is also responsible for an ambitious taxonomy of all living vertebrates. An associated online database, searchable by zoogeographic region (Holt et al., 2013), habitat and IUCN RedList status, is also planned.
