Species360 is pleased to welcome member University of Cordoba in Colombia, a leading Latin America research university. As part of its wildlife management studies, the university will use the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) to support the care and welfare of animals within their collection.
“By using ZIMS to record and share information on their collections, the University’s GEDFAS wildlife studies department will secure data and allow insights for years to come. We appreciate their participation and are pleased to be a part of their ongoing discoveries,” said Peter Donlon, Director of Global Member Development for Species360.
“We are grateful to welcome each of our new members during these very challenging times, and believe this is a testament to the value of being part of the global community. By using ZIMS to manage the care of animals and collections, our members curate and share valuable insight. The result improves animal welfare and helps to inform the conservation of species,” said Donlon.
Species360 is a global nonprofit serving more than 1,200 members, including zoos, aquariums, wildlife refuges, and research institutions in 100 countries. Together, our members curate and share data on wildlife — and use the resulting insights to improve the care and welfare of animals. This data often is tapped by conservation agencies such as IUCN Species Survival Commission and CITES to help shape strategies, policies, and programs to save species from extinction.
