Species360 had a delegation attending CoP19 to represent Species360 members and to highlight research from the Species360 Conservation Science Alliance (CSA).
In a letter to members, CEO Jim Guenter recaps 2022 events and achievements at nonprofit Species360.
Species360 is among those invited to be an International Champion of the EWC initiative. Other champions include the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), African Wildlife Foundation, IUCN World Commission on Environmental Law, the Jane Goodall Institute and others. International Champions support the EWC Statement of Purpose, and help to advance the objectives of the Initiative among their peers, members, and communities.
To curb illegal trade in tigers, WWF and TRAFFIC recommend establishing a central EU registry, one that models the one required by European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA), to improve transparency to the births, care, welfare, and deaths of all tigers in captivity.
EAZA's Silent Forest Group partners with Species360 Conservation Science Alliance to create a new way of looking at the world of songbirds -- one they hope will further enhance efforts to save them. The Songbird Species Knowledge Index applies analytics to global data, including vast demographic information curated by Species360 member zoos and aquariums using ZIMS.
ZIMS has become a source of critical insight for IUCN Species Survival Committee, CITES, TRAFFIC and others leading efforts to save species.
