This is first in a series of posts following the Species360 and Conservation Science Alliance staff as they conduct educational sessions at regional and international conferences around the world. While most are done virtually, some - like this one -…
As a member of global nonprofit Species360, DN Colleges students will use the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) to record data and monitor the welfare of individual animals and groups.
Join us as we talk with Samantha Guillaume Slatter Registrar and Curatorial Assistant at the Zoological Society of London (ZSL). Samantha served as an Aquarist at ZSL for 16 years, and is currently Aplocheilidae EEP coordinator for the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA).
Species360 is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with The Aquarium Vet, offering Species360 members discounted rates on the popular The Aquarium Vet E-quarist course and E-lasmo Conference.
Dalia A. Conde, Species360 Conservation Science Alliance Director, speaks with Frans Carlson about the importance of educating a next generation of scientists.
By analyzing ZIMS data for more than 9,200 zoo-based tigers, researchers found differences in reproductive and survival parameters that could influence conservation strategies. In particular, they looked at sub‐species and sex‐specific variability of survival and reproductive parameters with age.
Species360 research partners use ZIMS data to discover new insights. Among the participants in the research partner program are University of California at Berkeley and UC Davis (United States), University of Navarro (Spain), Babes Bolyai University (Romania), Murdoch University (Australia), and Royal Agriculture University (England).
Being good at your mission is more important than ever for aquariums' financial sustainability, according to new research shared in the Future Aquarium Trends webinar and panel discussion hosted this week by Species360. The tighter connection between mission and revenue is one of several important consumer research findings presented by Impacts Experience, a team that helps executives at cultural institutions like aquariums, museums, and zoos to develop business and audience engagement strategies based on actionable data.
"The phylogenetic and taxonomic diversity, the numerical scale, the multi-decadal and (often) multi-generational record-keeping, and the biological, behavioral, epidemiological and biomedical details contained (in ZIMS) are bursting with demographic possibilities."
