Wuppertal Zoo is one of the largest contributors of husbandry and medical information used to better understand and care for wildlife.

May 3, Species360 Director of Science Dr. Dalia Conde will lead a discussion on the power of aquarium and zoo data for scientific discovery. The course is part of a workshop on the role of zoos in advancing conservation and biological sciences, with for researchers from zoos, museums, and academic institutions.

Following a talk at the SC20 High Performance Computing Conference, Species360 Director of Science Dalia Conde talks with ScienceNode magazine about how data can help us better understand species survival
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.
As part of the global Species360 community, your teams contribute vital information on the animals in their care. That information is used by IUCN, CITES, and other conservation leaders, zoos, and aquariums worldwide to help improve the welfare of animals, advance medical treatments, and shape policies impacting species survival.
