Global non-profit Species360 welcomes the New Zealand Department of Conservation (DOC) Kakī Conservation Program to its member community. This government-led species recovery program manages or monitors about 200 Kakī (wading birds) including in situ and ex situ populations.
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).
Husbandry log templates are a great tool for keepers and aquarists to record daily activities for animals and daily maintenance for the enclosures in their care. This is one of the most popular features in ZIMS - so when Species360 members recommended changes, we listened. Using feedback that was submitted through our enhancement request portal, we have changed the husbandry log templates to both improve the process for creating templates as well as make data entry easier.
Species360 is currently seeking a software engineer to join the ZIMS development team.
