Aquarium L’Oceanogràfic (Valencia, Spain) uses ZIMS to measure its role in sustaining key species, including 28 coral species assessed as vulnerable to climate change.
Species360 research partners use ZIMS data to discover new insights. Among the participants in the research partner program are University of California at Berkeley and UC Davis (United States), University of Navarro (Spain), Babes Bolyai University (Romania), Murdoch University (Australia), and Royal Agriculture University (England).

"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."
EAZA's Silent Forest Group partners with Species360 Conservation Science Alliance to create a new way of looking at the world of songbirds -- one they hope will further enhance efforts to save them. The Songbird Species Knowledge Index applies analytics to global data, including vast demographic information curated by Species360 member zoos and aquariums using ZIMS.
