Species360 provides the Sanctuary with resources based on information gathered across 1,300 member institutions worldwide, including leading wildlife refuges and conservation centers. That includes ZIMS Global Medical Resources, insight to global populations, and access to peers caring for the same species worldwide.
Data from the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) has enabled researchers to develop a framework suggesting which species need to be prioritized for genetic sampling to aid conservation efforts for threatened species.
New research used ZIMS data to analyze factors that can influence reproductive success in flamingos.
Species360 had a delegation attending CoP19 to represent Species360 members and to highlight research from the Species360 Conservation Science Alliance (CSA).
From Costa Rica to Papua New Guinea, Species360 members have been featured in more than 100 news articles this summer - in national, regional, and local news and via their own newsletters and blogs. The topic: the role of each institution in recording and sharing data used to study aging in species. These articles are the result of a press release reporting Species360 members' part in research conducted by the Conservation Science Alliance and published in Science magazine.
As a member of the Species360 community for over 35 years, Bristol Zoological Society is already using ZIMS – the Zoological Information Management System used by the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA), the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA), and other zoo and aquarium associations worldwide – to streamline the way that information is recorded and applied throughout the organisation.
Recent DNA studies show that 90% of the green female turtles returning to Grand Cayman to nest are genetically related to the turtles from the Cayman Turtle Conservation and Education Centre. (Photo: CTCEC) It's hard to imagine the Cayman Islands…
The Cologne Zoo, the third oldest zoo in Germany and home to more than 850 species in total, is a noteworthy leader in research and species protection programs. The Zoo uses the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) for day-to-day record-keeping as well as for its conservation projects out in the field.
Data from the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) has enabled researchers from the Species360 Conservation Science Alliance and the University of Southern Denmark to investigate evolutionary aging theories in tortoises and turtles.
The Species360 Conservation Science Alliance (CSA) presents a unique opportunity for conservationists around the world to collaborate using one-of-a-kind data and professional expertise shared by Species360 members and partners to serve animal care and species conservation.
