As a member of the Species360 community for over 35 years, Bristol Zoological Society is already using ZIMS – the Zoological Information Management System used by the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA), the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA), and other zoo and aquarium associations worldwide – to streamline the way that information is recorded and applied throughout the organisation.
Earlier this quarter, Species360 introduced new enhancements to ZIMS for Husbandry and Aquatics. Here is a look at four recent updates and what they mean for thousands of zoo and aquarium staff that use ZIMS every day. Each of these changes was made in response to requests from Species360 members.
Osaka Tennoji Zoo is a leader in the zoo community and a member of Species360.
The Cologne Zoo, the third oldest zoo in Germany and home to more than 850 species in total, is a noteworthy leader in research and species protection programs. The Zoo uses the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) for day-to-day record-keeping as well as for its conservation projects out in the field.
Data from the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) has enabled researchers from the Species360 Conservation Science Alliance and the University of Southern Denmark to investigate evolutionary aging theories in tortoises and turtles.
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.
Species360 is pleased to welcome two new members to our team, Clint Pidlubny and Lorielle Weingarden.
