Species360 is currently seeking a software engineer to join the ZIMS development team.
Species360 releases ZIMS for Studbooks global search tool -- allowing associations, species survival programs, zoos, and aquariums to identify studbooks and managers supporting collaborative breeding programs.
NEW in ZIMS! Test Result Upload for Gribbles New Zealand and Gribbles Australia Zoo, aquarium, and wildlife veterinary teams can now upload Gribbles Australia test lab results directly to ZIMS for Medical. By adding lab results directly to the animal's medical records, the Test Result Upload feature reduces manual data entry and improves the accuracy of records.
Dr. Sandy Trautwein will join Species360 as Director of Aquatics Conservation and Product Management. She most recently was Vice President of Husbandry at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California.
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.
Our aquatics community continues to grow, enabling aquariums to curate and share data essential to animal welfare and species conservation. Twenty aquariums worldwide joined Species360 in 2019 and 2020.
Along with the struggles, there have been a few positive outcomes, including a change in our impact on the environment. As we look ahead, we intend to build upon some of the lessons learned.
Zoo, aquarium, wildlife veterinarians use the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) to record and share information regarding animals in their care. Now, when these veterinary teams send blood samples to IDEXX, they can view and upload the report directly in ZIMS for Medical. Called ZIMS Test Result Upload, the new feature reduces manual data entry for veterinary staff and improves the accuracy and volume of data used to calculate ZIMS Expected Test Results used by veterinarians to diagnose illness.
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
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.
