Coming in March! ZIMS for Husbandry will include Studbook IDs

The European Association of Zoos and Aquariums and Pan-African Association of Zoos and Aquariums (EAZA/PAAZA), as well as the Zoos and Aquariums Association (U.S), currently use ZIMS for Studbooks to help ensure healthy, sustainable cheetah populations.

Requested by studbook keepers and registrars alike, ZIMS for Husbandry will automatically display Studbook IDs in the Husbandry animal identifier grid.

What it does: All ZIMS for Husbandry animals that are linked to an animal within a studbook will now automatically display the Studbook ID in the identifier grid as a global identifier.

Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and European Association of Zoos and Aquariums (EAZA) are using ZIMS for Studbooks to manage essential population records for the endangered Malayan tapir.

How it saves time: This eliminates the need to communicate new studbook IDs separately or manually add them into the animal records, saving time for both registrars and studbook keepers. When a studbook animal is unlinked or deleted in the studbook, then the identifier will automatically be removed from the Husbandry grid as well.

When it happens: The feature is scheduled for release March 13.

Nearly 700 regional and international studbooks are now managed using ZIMS for Studbooks, and more are migrating to ZIMS every day. The goals:

  • Saving time for studbook keepers — and now registrars too!
  • Providing you with more accurate, real-time insight to changes in your population, through integration with ZIMS for Husbandry.
  • Securing data needed to sustain species and ensure the health and welfare of animals now and in the future.

Thanks as always for your feedback! We are so pleased to keep making ZIMS better all the time!
