New! ZIMS supports members’ institutional studbooks

Katelyn Mucha is Product Owner, ZIMS for Studbooks, Species360. She is also an Adjunct Population Biologist for the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (AZA) Population Management Center.

Are you managing a head start program, a release program, or a breeding population of a species that is not yet a cooperatively managed program? ZIMS for Studbooks can help.

In its latest release, ZIMS for Studbooks now allows Species360 member institutions to migrate existing studbooks and create new studbooks for species they manage which are not maintained by their regional association. Species360 added studbook member functionality in response to a high number of member requests to migrate their existing studbooks.

If you are interested in migrating your SPARKS or PopLink studbooks or creating a new studbook for a species you manage, please have your ZIMS local administrator reach out to our member support team (  We will be glad to walk you through the steps.

Coming soon: We are currently working on a new global studbook search tool that will improve the way that you search and view studbooks in your region or institution. Watch here for updates!
