For more than 40 years, the Isaac Conservation and Wild Trust (ICWT) has worked to protect and recover endemic New Zealand species. ICWT’s wildlife division is not open to the public, allowing all efforts to focus on breeding and raising juveniles of critically endangered species, including:
The New Zealand Black Stilt / Kakī;
Brown Teal / Pātek;
Blue Duck / Whio;
New Zealand Shore Plover / Tūturuatu; and
Orange Fronted Parakeet / Kākāriki karaka.
Now, the institution’s vital chronological data on including comprehensive historic records on individuals, breeding pairs, and hatchlings, will be more secure, accessible, and able to be maintained using the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS).
The wildlife division will migrate to ZIMS from a legacy ARKS system.
Thank you to nutrition leader Mazuri for providing a sponsorship which makes ICWT’s data integration to ZIMS possible.
