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.
In February, Radio Canada science reporter Gino Harel talked with Fernando Colchera, Species360 and SDU, about the recent use of zoo and aquarium data, via ZIMS, in new cancer research discoveries regarding the incidence of cancer in mammals.
"...Our study highlights the value of the incredible work of the zoo and aquariums that integrate and standardize their records in ZIMS."

Aquarium L’Oceanogràfic (Valencia, Spain) uses ZIMS to measure its role in sustaining key species, including 28 coral species assessed as vulnerable to climate change.
"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."
