Oregon State University, along with The Nature Conservancy and dozens of conservation groups, led a groundbreaking study that found 90.6% of the species population has been wiped out and estimated as many as 5.75 billion animals died from the disease since the die-off began. Species360 is pleased to be a part of foundational research that is essential to informing species conservation.
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).
As a Research Partner, Fort Worth Zoo gains access to aggregated, anonymous data needed to better understand medical norms, animal care and welfare best practices, and more. These insights are made possible by Species360 members who curate and share data on the individual animals and collections in their care.
