Species360 Member News
Since 2016, the Two Oceans Aquarium has been a Species360 member and uses the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) for a variety of purposes, including aquatics, husbandry, medical needs, and rescue and rehabilitation efforts.
New research, shared late last month in the Future of Aquariums/Europe webinar presented by Impacts Experience and Species360, shows that visitors increasingly expect aquariums to be conservation institutions. What does this mean for post-pandemic recovery? And how have closures helped aquariums to increase their presence "outside the walls" of their facilities?
In case you missed it! Here are recent enhancements to ZIMS for Care and Welfare. Using feedback from our members, we implemented improvements that make it easier and faster to track animal welfare, model processes for peer teams, and more quickly rollout templates designed for each species.

L'Aquarium Tropical de La Porte Dorée in Paris, France, has recently joined Species360 as a new member, joining more than 360 aquariums that curate and share data as part of the global Species360 community.
Data from the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) has been crucial in enabling researchers to investigate the correlation between brain size and life expectancy in parrots.
