Since its founding, EAZA member AquaZoo has used the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) to record and share data on animals and enclosures.
AquaZoo is celebrating its 20th anniversary by welcoming four Amur tiger cubs – the first to be born here.
Parents Aïda and Vadim were brought to AquaZoo just last year as part of EAZA’s Amur tiger species conservation and management program. The female Aïda comes from Safaripark Beekse Bergen and the male Vadim comes from Sosto Zoo in Hungary.
AquaZoo, which features an outdoor walking path and natural settings, created a new habitat for Aïda and Vadim with over 5,000 square meters consisting of caves, hills, climbing trees and a watercourse.
There was a demand for an extra location to shelter tigers. We really wanted to contribute to the conservation of this species, so we are very happy with the arrival of these four cubs. It is extra special that they were born in the year we celebrate our twentieth anniversary. We could not have received a better gift.Jeroen Loomeijer, General Manager, AquaZoo
Also a 20-year member of global nonprofit Species360, AquaZoo uses the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) to record and share information on its animals and enclosures. By using ZIMS, AquaZoo helps to increase the collective knowledge of species worldwide.
