In August, we celebrate the 30th anniversary of Species360 membership of the National Zoological Gardens of South Africa. As part of Species360, Guadalajara Zoo helps to curate one of the world’s largest sets of wildlife data critical to species conservation.
Species360 facilitates the international collaboration of zoos, aquariums, and refuges in collecting and sharing information critical to improving animal welfare. Its members rely on the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) to record data regarding individual animals, aquatic collections, and groups of species. In turn, information recorded in ZIMS provides critical insight to wildlife care, medical treatments, biodiversity and more.
Congratulations on 30 years of curating and managing critical species data as part of Species360, and thanks for all you do.
