May 3, Species360 Director of Science Dr. Dalia Conde will lead a discussion on the power of aquarium and zoo data for scientific discovery. The course is part of a workshop on the role of zoos in advancing conservation and biological sciences, with for researchers from zoos, museums, and academic institutions.
For our annual volunteer project, Species360 searched for a volunteer project that we could do together online – and we found Zooniverse! This innovative online platform allows researchers to crowdsource their work. Volunteers can help with projects in areas such as music and art, medicine, history, language, biology, space, and more.
Canterbury College (UK) has joined Species360, and will use the educational platform LearnZIMS to support coursework in animal biology, animal science, and wildlife conservation.
