We are celebrating member anniversaries with some magnificent institutions among the global Species360 community. Most notable is what longevity and data curating mean for shared insights to animal care and species conservation. Together, Species360 and its association members like EAZA, WAZA, AZA, ZAA-Australasia, JAZA, BIAZA, and more, help to grow species knowledge as much as 800 percent, according to the Species Knowledge Index developed by the research community.
Here are a few of the anniversaries we celebrated in November:
45th Anniversary! The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) records data on 25,066 animals and groups spanning 2,130 species.
40th Anniversary: Zoo Zürich (Switzerland) records data on 18,103 animals and groups of 698 species; Brandywine Zoo (United States) records data on 1,084 animals and groups of 183 species; Staten Island Zoo (United States) records data on 3,144 animals and groups of 793 species; Edinburgh Zoo – Scottish National Zoo (United Kingdom) records data on 11,315 animals and groups of 584 species.
