Coral reefs are among the most diverse ecosystems in nature, harboring 32 of the 34 known animal phyla, yet some scientists predict they could disappear by 2050. Aquariums are playing an important role in conservation and restoration of these "rainforests of the sea".
 
Confessions of an aquarium registrar – octopus personalities and coral conservation
Katie Kisner of Florida Aquarium talks about her career as Registrar and Animal Resource Manager and the importance of good data to her work and the conservation projects at her institution.
 
Advanced healthcare for aquatic collections
Pooled global medical resources are not only critical for conservation, they are also vital resources to help aquariums answer common questions and best manage the species in their care. Learn how shared data is helping to put veterinary teams and curators at the forefront of advanced animal care.

"The idea of global data sharing – the fact that you have all those reports that can give you data, not just within your own facility, but across facilities worldwide is amazing. That's one reason I really wish more aquariums would get involved in ZIMS."

Katie Kisner, Registrar and Animal Resource Manager, Florida Aquarium
