Data from the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) has been crucial in enabling researchers to investigate the correlation between brain size and life expectancy in parrots.
“Millions of unique samples are at the core of our ability to care for and save individual animals and species, now and far into the future. ZIMS vastly improves how the zoo, aquarium, and wildlife communities manage sample resources worldwide," said Paul Calle, Chief Veterinarian and Vice President for Health Programs, Wildlife Conservation Society.
As a member of Species360, Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center will curate and manage animal care and species information using the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS). More than 100 zoos, aquariums, wildlife refuges, breeding and conservation centers joined Species360 in the past year.
ZIMS has become a source of critical insight for IUCN Species Survival Committee, CITES, TRAFFIC and others leading efforts to save species.
