The Cologne Zoo, the third oldest zoo in Germany and home to more than 850 species in total, is a noteworthy leader in research and species protection programs. The Zoo uses the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) for day-to-day record-keeping as well as for its conservation projects out in the field.
For our latest ZIMS at Work feature, we’re highlighting Copenhagen Zoo — which opened in 1859 —as it marks 45 years with Species360, one of our many long-standing members. During that time, the Zoo has entered data into the Species360 Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) on 13,034 animals in 856 taxa, entering and exiting the system on 6,571 occasions.
Take a look at some of the new functionality in ZIMS for Medical, including sample storage, test result upload, improved usability and more.

As you celebrate this holiday season, we wish you peace and joy found in moments shared -- whether in person or across the distances -- with those you hold dear.
"The phylogenetic and taxonomic diversity, the numerical scale, the multi-decadal and (often) multi-generational record-keeping, and the biological, behavioral, epidemiological and biomedical details contained (in ZIMS) are bursting with demographic possibilities."
For Saint Louis Zoo and other institutions, having animal keepers be frontline record keepers for husbandry information requires the addition of a new level of oversight. ZIMS Advanced Access Management (AAM) supports 120 keepers doing direct entry in in the husbandry module on a daily basis.
