Researchers at University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, and Hamilton College, United States, have joined the Species360 community as part of the Research Partner program, which provides insights from the world’s largest set of wildlife data. The research teams at each of these institutions will reference data aggregated across global ex situ populations to inform unique studies.
University of St. Gallen research institute will use ZIMS data to help assess changes throughout the in situ and ex situ Ivory Coast populations of endangered and critically endangered species. This research is part of the wildlife project under the direction of the Aboukouamékro National Parc, Ivory Coast.
Hamilton College Department of Biology, New York, has become a Research Partner of Species360, whose 1,100 aquarium, zoo, and wildlife refuge members curate the largest set of wildlife data in the world. Hamilton will use Species360 ZIMS analytics to investigate physiological traits and correlations across numerous wildlife species.
Species360 is a member-driven organization. Its more than 1,100 zoological, aquatics, conservation and research members curate the world’s largest set of wildlife data, including daily updates from wildlife experts, marine biologists, veterinarians, and zoologists worldwide.
It is great to see the growing group of researchers use these member-supported tools to advance wildlife understanding.
