International Species Information System



International Species Information System
The ISIS 7-year business plan
december 2004
The International Species Information System (ISIS) has supported the data needs of the global
zoo and aquarium community for 30 years. Now, ISIS is committed to providing a higher level
of support and service to its members and supporting a modern information system – Zoological
Information Management System (ZIMS)
The ISIS Mission
It is the mission of ISIS to facilitate international collaboration in the collection and sharing of
information on animals and their environments for zoos, aquariums and related organizations by:
– Supporting, maintaining and ensuring the continuous development of comprehensive
zoological software systems.
– Providing services that are essential for members and prospective members to manage the
animals in their care.
– Serving as an independent, impartial body, which promotes the development of standards and
practices that enhance the integrity and usefulness of data on animals and their environments.
– Obtaining the highest possible participation in data collection and sharing for zoos, aquariums
and related organizations worldwide.
– Planning and managing the resources (human, financial and technological) needed to
meet all of these goals.
ISIS Values and Beliefs
– We value the use of objective data to benefit conservation, science, animal welfare, education
and collection management.
– We believe that our mission can best be served by openly sharing our animal data.
– We acknowledge our responsibility to insure our animal data is accurate, complete
and up-to-date.
– We value integrity and honesty in the provision, analysis and interpretation
of our animal data.
– We value continuous improvement of our management software through an open process.
– We believe that an inclusive approach to membership is important to the achievement
of our mission.
– We value a diversity of management and conservation approaches, as represented
within our membership.
– We believe that global cooperation will help us to achieve our goals.
The ISIS Board of Trustees has developed and approved this vision, mission, values and beliefs statement, April 2003.

For 30 years, ISIS has supported the broader conservation community with four generations of software
for worldwide animal inventory, veterinary record keeping, studbook applications and other uses.
Now, rapid advances in information technology offer enormous new opportunities to carry the ISIS
mission further.
The ISIS Board has approved this business plan to sustain ISIS operations, grow membership and ensure
the successful delivery of the ISIS Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) application, a
global animal management system that will enhance local care and international conservation efforts.
ISIS has restructured its Board of Trustees to more broadly represent the global zoo and aquarium
community and to facilitate technical and scientific committees.
In addition, the board has restructured the organization to provide stronger technical support, training,
professional database administration, better communications and stronger financial development. The
board has also approved expansion of the ISIS management team.
Because the majority of ISIS resources come from member dues, the ISIS Board approved a restructured
member dues schedule beginning in 2004. While a revenue increase was essential for 2004, this business
plan shows that continued membership growth and sustained external fund-raising should hold any
further member dues increases to just inflation for the next seven years. Member dues now total
US $1.4 million per year, but were less than US $1 million per year through 2003.
To raise funds for development and deployment of ZIMS, ISIS is conducting a capital
campaign – Building ZIMS: The Campaign for ISIS.
The ZIMS effort is based on extraordinary global cooperation among zoos, aquariums and related
organizations – achieved because of their commitment to wildlife; catalyzed through ISIS as an
international, non-profit organization. As part of building ZIMS, almost 500 individuals, representing
almost 200 institutions worldwide have come together to contribute their time and ideas to the
project – and we are continuing to recruit more volunteers.
Executive summary
The global zoo and aquarium community uses information management systems to track their
collections for animal welfare, management and conservation. Access to animal information directly
affects the daily operations of zoological organizations committed to conservation. Accurate, current,
comprehensive information contributes to the well-being and survival of 10,000 species in
living collections.
The ISIS 7-year business plan
History of ISIS
ISIS began in 1973 when Professor Ulysses S. Seal and a small group of veterinarians, scientists and
zoo leaders developed a vision for a global animal information system that would serve zoos and
aquariums. In the beginning, the Minnesota Zoological Garden generously served as the “enterprise
incubator” for ISIS. The American Zoo & Aquarium Association (AZA), the American Association of
Zoo Veterinarians (AAZV) and other zoological associations provided grants and encouragement.
ISIS began operations in 1974 with 55 member institutions (mostly in North America) and an
international vision, mission and name. Through 30 years, membership has grown at an average of
20 new institutional members per year, and expanded globally. Currently, ISIS has 630 members in
more than 70 countries on six continents. In 2004 alone, 50 new members joined ISIS.
In 1989, ISIS transformed from a self-funded department of the Minnesota Zoological Garden into
an international, member-owned, non-profit organization governed by the internationally elected
ISIS Board of Trustees. (See Appendix A for a list of current ISIS Board members.)
The history of ISIS can be seen as a 30-year “proof of concept.” ISIS staff has often been told “global
cooperation cannot be done.” Nevertheless, it IS being done! Through a mix of internal development
and outsourcing, ISIS has supported four generations of software for worldwide animal inventory,
veterinary record keeping, studbook applications and other uses, used by a steadily growing global network.
ISIS has played a key role in establishing standards and sharing globally pooled specimen records
among the zoo and aquarium community. ISIS has helped zoos and aquariums cooperate more than
comparable organizations, like botanical gardens and museums, in data management, software
development and global data sharing. This has many advantages, and has saved ISIS member
institutions the very considerable costs of developing such tools individually.
While the ISIS membership network has continuously expanded, limited ISIS resources have
slowed technical progress. For most of the history of ISIS, there has been one staff person for about
50 institutions served. This thrifty approach kept costs down, but at times in the past resulted in
long waits for technical service, inadequate training and restricted services.
The majority of the organization’s resources come from member dues, which now total US $1.4 million
per year, but were less than US $1 million annually before 2004. ISIS has relied substantially on more
than 70 grants and contracts, which have been generated by the organization’s small staff.
(A partial list of these grants is printed in Appendix C.)
Now, rapid advances in information technology offer enormous opportunities to carry the ISIS mission
further, serving the global zoo and aquarium community and wildlife conservation through effective,
current information sharing. Hence, ISIS has restructured its Board of Trustees, strengthened its internal
management team, and expanded and professionalized user technical support, adding essential staff
capacity to manage the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) Project.
ISIS is committed to further changes as needed to serve its members. As one measure of these changes,
there is now one ISIS staff person per 30 institutional members – improving the level of service ISIS provides.
To pay for these essential changes, the ISIS Board approved a restructured member dues schedule effective
from 2004. In addition, ISIS is conducting a capital campaign Building ZIMS: The Campaign for ISIS to
raise funds for development and deployment of ZIMS.
Zoos and aquariums have important cultural and recreational roles, and serve as conservation and
research institutions. Knowledge gained in zoological settings often helps conserve wild populations.
Because only about four percent of the world's land surface is protected, natural habitats for many
species disappear or become untenable. When this happens, zoos and aquariums often represent
self-sustaining communities for the preservation and conservation of wildlife species. A handful of
species have already become extinct in the wild and have been re-introduced from zoo populations.
Since 1974, ISIS has fostered information sharing to aid wildlife among 630 institutions in more than
70 countries. The ISIS network is growing rapidly. The goal is to include all professionally managed
zoos and aquariums in the world as ISIS members.
An easy-to-use global ISIS software system (ZIMS) will help all zoos and aquariums identify best
practices in animal management. As a result, our community will provide improved care for
individual animals, and the status of animal populations will improve.
Today, most wildlife veterinarians work in zoos, aquariums and a few leading national parks. ISIS
provides valuable tools to these veterinarians by collecting experience and information from hundreds
of thousands of individual animals globally. This knowledge, which is unprecedented for many
species, is essential to the animal’s care and survival.
More and more of this knowledge is used to help manage the survival of wild populations and
sustain zoo populations. Zoos and aquariums generate important knowledge about veterinary
medicine, including finding effective and appropriate anesthesia drugs and doses, genetics,
demography, behavior, aquatic chemistry, microbiology, nutrition and treatments for various
wildlife diseases. This knowledge improves animal welfare and contributes to conservation.
Conservation management
More than 600 million people (many of them young children) visit zoos and aquariums each year.
As these visitors experience more than 10,000 living species, they learn to care about wildlife and
appreciate biodiversity on land, in oceans and in freshwater. The animals in the care of these
institutions become urban ambassadors for wildlife.
The ISIS 7-year business plan
Expanding membership globally
Through 30 years of building global relationships, ISIS has developed a worldwide network of
cooperation, created animal data standards and accumulated a unique archive of specimen
information on nearly 2 million animals of 10,000 species.
Membership in ISIS has grown every year for more than 30 years. Each new ISIS member institution
adds data that (1) completes many individual animal histories and pedigrees that connect with data
on animals at other ISIS member institutions, and (2) brings us closer to providing comprehensive
information on the global zoo and aquarium wildlife population.
Today, 630 zoos, aquariums and related organizations share information about their animals through
the existing ISIS system. (See Appendix F for a list of ISIS members.) However, there are at least 1,200
zoological institutions involved in national and regional zoological associations, and numerous other
organizations involved in hands-on animal care and conservation across the globe. Through upgraded
services and targeted marketing and communications efforts, ISIS plans to attract many new members
over the next seven years.
One of the major opportunities for expanding ISIS membership is aquariums. While over half of
the world’s recognized zoos are members of ISIS, only a small percent of the world’s aquariums are
members as of 2004. More than 400 aquariums could potentially become members of ISIS. Because
aquariums are breeding seahorses and other threatened taxa, expanding their conservation programs,
they need access to a global pool of data on best practices for husbandry, veterinary care, water
management, etc. Some aquariums have very substantial financial resources, and many recognize
the need for standard and sophisticated animal and environment information systems.
ISIS has had very limited market share among aquariums because ISIS has not had products and
services developed for their specialized needs, nor the resources to develop them. The new Zoological
Information Management System (ZIMS) will change that by including significant functionality
identified as important by aquariums. We are finding aquarium partners for our capital campaign
Building ZIMS: The Campaign for ISIS and will broaden recruiting efforts among aquariums as the new
products and services become tangible.
ISIS has already accomplished many of the more challenging marketing objectives for such an effort.
We have achieved global name recognition, which has helped bring a good part of our community on
board. ISIS will become the central data source for animal management data by adding staff and
resources; committing to inclusive processes and comprehensive coverage, and soliciting help from
ISIS partners around the world.
Together, we can build trust, exchange ideas, find solutions for differing problems in different regions
and bring the other half of those involved in hands-on animal care of wildlife species into the ISIS
global network.
As the ISIS network continues to expand, more information is available to each member, and the fixed
costs of ISIS operation can be shared across a larger number of members. Both of these advantages
will be increasingly important as we develop and support ZIMS.
The ISIS Board is now larger. Depending on appointments made by the board itself, the board could
include up to 26 members. The new board structure includes zoo, aquarium and regional associations,
and may include conservation organizations and supportive corporations as formal partners of ISIS.
The board has also added membership categories to include these regional and professional associations
and other external partners.
ISIS has set up two new board-level advisory committees – the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC)
and the Technology Advisory Committee (TAC) in response to stakeholder requests for the best
scientific and technical advice. The SAC and TAC will facilitate international cooperation among ISIS
members and other experts in these areas. These committee chairs serve on the ISIS Board of Trustees.
These board-level changes will allow ISIS to most effectively fulfill its mission and coordinate with key
partners worldwide. (See Appendix A for ISIS Board member list; Appendix B for organizational chart.)
Restructuring ISIS: Board and bylaws
The ISIS Board of Trustees reviewed restructuring ideas generated through ISIS Future Search 2000 and
two ad hoc Global Animal Data Group meetings of stakeholders. The ISIS Board responded by substantially
modifying its structure, the ISIS Bylaws, and supporting changes throughout the organization.
The ISIS 7-year business plan
Restructuring ISIS: Operations
In response to member needs, the ISIS Board approved changes to the ISIS operations structure. These
changes include stronger technical support and training, professional database administration, better
communications and stronger financial development.
ISIS has strengthened its support staff and added two new management-level positions: a chief
technology officer for the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) Project, and a
communications and marketing coordinator.
In addition, ISIS has hired a business systems analyst, brought in technology consultants and recruited
hundreds of volunteers to serve on various ZIMS development teams. ISIS has signed a contract with a
major software development firm, CGI, to build ZIMS.
This new operational structure improves the organization’s service level and provides structured
departments headed by professionals to manage, support, communicate globally and lead training
for a modern, global ZIMS.
To assess members in a reasonable and fair way, ISIS assembled budget information from as many
members as possible (457 members; about 75 percent of ISIS membership).
ISIS member budget distribution: log scale
1 25 49 73 97 121 145 169 193 217 241 265 289 313 337 361 385 409 433 457
We found that:
– Member budgets vary enormously; the range is 10,000 fold!
– The sum of all members’ budgets is approximately US $2.4 billion
– Approximately 20 percent of ISIS member institutions have budgets over US $10 million
– Approximately 40 percent of ISIS member institutions have US $1-10 million budgets
– Approximately 40 percent of ISIS member institutions have budgets smaller than US $1 million
– Approximately 100 of the smallest organizations have budgets below US $250,000 (These
members pay ISIS more than 0.1 percent of their general operating budgets, the highest relative
rates paid by any member)
– 0.1 percent of ISIS members’ budgets would be US $2.4 million
– ISIS membership amounts to less than one-tenth of one percent of many institution’s budgets
The ISIS 7-year business plan
Based on these findings, the ISIS Board approved a restructured member fee schedule. The new
member fee schedule, which was instituted for 2004, is printed in Appendix E.
Restructuring ISIS: Membership dues
In order for the organization to strengthen its services and operations through increased professional
services, ISIS found it critical to increase its resources, which are generated primarily through member
dues. These resources help pay for technical support and basic operating costs. Increased resources are
also necessary to give ISIS the capacity to support the Zoological Information Management System
(ZIMS) once the system is built.
Restructuring ISIS: Membership dues
Access to up-to-date, comprehensive data from as many of the world’s zoos, aquariums and related
organizations as possible is to the advantage of all ISIS members – large and small. Therefore, we must
assure that 1) costs are shared equitably among our members and 2) that membership is accessible to
institutions in both the developed and developing worlds. To assure access, the ISIS Board has set the
minimum annual fee at the estimated marginal cost to ISIS of serving one additional institution.
Starting in 2004, ISIS generated approximately US $1.4 million annually from membership. This is
almost 50 percent more than member revenues in 2003. While this revenue increase was essential, this
business plan projects that member dues should increase only for inflation in the next seven years.
Based on continued membership growth and external fund-raising, member dues should increase only
as depicted below.

The net increase in member dues for 2004 has expanded the organization’s capacity to provide
professional services and technical support to meet member demands for a more forward-looking
organization. The organization’s upgraded technical support infrastructure improves support for
current services and prepares ISIS to support the new ZIMS.

Building Z I MS: The next generation of ISIS software
Preserving genetic diversity and maintaining demographic stability in wildlife populations requires
careful information-intensive management of the combined populations of animals held in zoos,
aquariums and related organizations worldwide. The high-quality, timely, comprehensive ISIS
Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) will meet many of these communities’ needs,
and meet or exceed national and international regulatory requirements.
ZIMS will maintain information on animals in zoos, conservation-breeding centers and some
animals in wild populations. The ZIMS application will better address the needs of aquariums,
where sophisticated, data-intense environmental information management is necessary to manage
large groups of hard-to-distinguish individuals.
The ZIMS Phase I will be a powerfully-architected animal inventory and veterinary system, building on
and replacing the current ISIS software systems. ISIS members’ data on the ISIS system (and in ISIS
software: ARKS, MedARKS, SPARKS, EGGS, etc.) will be loaded into ZIMS. Members will be able to
retrieve the information in ZIMS both graphically and numerically with easy-to-use query tools. ZIMS
will be available through the World Wide Web.
In addition, ZIMS will help our community protect its animals from disease by tracking both
well-known, and new and emerging animal diseases around the world. This is an important new
aspect of ZIMS – there is currently no comprehensive system meeting these needs.
Once the first phase of ZIMS has been completed and deployed, we will begin to explore other areas
that have been identified by our members, such as nutrition and behavior. We will continue to reach
out to our members for their advice and guidance on future phases of the ZIMS application.
As ISIS technology improves, the provenance, history and pedigree of individual specimens will
become more accurately documented. The genetic, demographic and disease status of more than
10,000 animal populations will be monitored and available to ISIS members in multiple languages.
The ZIMS Project is both technologically modern and geographically ambitious. ZIMS is the most
globally distributed Microsoft .NET project currently known to be under development in the world.
While there are projects with much larger budgets, the information technology industry is not aware
of any other undertakings with the global reach of our ZIMS Project.
Almost 500 individuals from 200 organizations have contributed to this powerful idea of ZIMS.
Building on the previous 30 years, a clear and powerful vision of the future is in our community’s
hands, and we are committed to working with our community to reach it.
Assumptions of the model:
– Assuming continued membership growth, increases in ISIS membership fee revenue will be
limited to inflation adjustments of not more than 5% per year.
– We will fully develop the aquarium membership category.
– We will be successful in our “friends and family” portion of our capital
campaign (Goal: US $5 million).
– We will seek new revenue opportunities.
– We will gain increased revenue from government and foundation grants (although on a
percentage basis these grants will account for less of the larger overall operating budget – from
30% down to 20%).
– The Animal Records Keeping System (ARKS), the Medical Animal Records Keeping
System (MedARKS) and ISIS central database will be phased out in the next two years.
– Most ISIS operating and ZIMS development expenses will not increase more than an average
of five percent per year.
– ISIS staff time on the ZIMS Project will be capitalized until ZIMS deployment.
– All projections include US $2.2 million (over five years) in ISIS capital investment
in the ZIMS Project. These numbers are shown in the financial model separately.
Estimated costs
The ZIMS vendor development cost will be US $3 million over a three-year period. We have agreed
to pay the ZIMS vendor CGI over a 24-month period (May 2004-April 2006). Because ISIS member
pledges have been promised over a seven-year period (2003-2009 – many members have made five
year pledges starting in different years), we plan to use bridge loan financing of up to US $2 million.
We will pay this loan as pledges are received.
We have estimated the member-driven design and development process at US $2 million over a
three-year period. This estimate includes costs of workshops and input gathering from members.
This estimate does not include ISIS staff salaries (nor the valuable contributed time from the many
hard-working volunteers).
We have estimated hosting costs through the deployment phase at US $1.25 million; ISIS and
community infrastructure improvement at US $1.25 million and global community training and
deployment support at US $4.7 million. (These estimates also do not include ISIS staff time,
which is capitalized in the model as part of the project cost.)

Building Z I MS: Identified risks and mitigation
Building the new Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS) is an exciting opportunity for
ISIS and the global community we serve. The ZIMS Project will take considerable resources over the
next two years, and we must continue to professionally support our current software for our members
in the meantime.
Following is a brief list of potential risks and actions taken by the organization to mitigate those risks.
– Cash flow shortfalls. ISIS has secured a line of credit at 85 percent of written pledges.
– There is a potential that the cash from the written pledges will be slow to materialize; that the
US $5 million we count on finding from outside our community may not come when we need it.
We have included an optional pause in our contract with CGI until the capital can be raised.
However, this option will cost an additional US $150,000, if used.
– Aquariums may not join ISIS as planned. We will be sure that ZIMS serves aquarium needs
by working to involve aquariums during the development process. We will also invest in a
comprehensive marketing and communication plan to gain aquarium memberships. We will
further assess this risk during 2005.
– Financial constraints may discourage proportionate representation of users at all levels in the
ZIMS team. We have dedicated a modest budget to help those who may not be able to attend
workshop and development sessions for this reason.
– Some members, especially smaller zoos, may not see the need for ZIMS because the current
ISIS systems seem to serve their immediate needs. We will work closely with these facilities to assure
that their needs are addressed in the new system and to show them the additional benefits ZIMS
will offer to them.
– For some organizations involved in animal care, even the basic dues to ISIS are not affordable.
ISIS offers a modest sponsorship program that directs new facilities to larger zoos and aquariums
that may sponsor them as part of outreach programs. This program will be further developed in 2005.
If the project is not fully funded, we will need to cut back in areas of ZIMS development. The primary
cost-saving options are to:
– Decrease deployment expense by using more volunteers
– Reduce application management and hosting cost below current bids
– Reduce ISIS-funded community participation
– Reduce support team size
– Leverage already existing conferences as the major venues for training and deployment
If necessary, we could cut the total cost through these measures up to US $3.72 million. However,
these cost savings would increase risk for the overall success of the ZIMS Project.
Later expansion to a full-fledged system that would fulfill additional information needs, such as
nutrition and behavior will require additional support. When we are successful with the first phase of
the ZIMS Project (core and veterinary system). We will have new opportunities to raise funds and add
these other needed functions.

of the zoological community, US $500,000 National Leadership Grant through the U.S. Institute of
Museum and Library Services (IMLS), a US $300,000 grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation
and US $500,000 through a U.S. Congressional allocation, (and at year’s end ISIS received a
US $50,000 gift from The Boeing Company for 2005, with a US $50,000 matching grant for 2006).
Building ZI MS: The Campaign for ISIS
In this overall plan, a large percentage of the funding will come from the global zoo and aquarium
community. Our community is committed to this project, and our investment must be substantial to
convince external donors of the importance of building ZIMS.

ISIS membership fees are set by the elected ISIS Board of Trustees. Membership fees can be calculated
in two ways. The ISIS membership year is 1 January to 31 December. Aquariums, which receive partial
services from ISIS at present, are eligible for membership at US $955.
To calculate and choose which membership fee option is best, members are asked to follow these steps:
1. Attendance based fee option:
Calculate the total number of visitors that attended your facility during the previous year, including
paid gate admissions, free day admissions, society members and children/adults attending field trips
and education programs.
Using this total, choose the appropriate fee from this table.
Annual attendance
Fee (USD)
0 to 99,999 visitors per year
100,000 to 249,999 visitors per year
250,000 to 499,999 visitors per year
500,000 to 999,999 visitors per year
1 million to 1,999,999 visitors per year
2 million or more visitors per year
Last full year's attendance (required)
2. General operating budget fee option:
A. Use your facility’s general operating budget for the previous year
B. Remove costs for gift stores, concessions and new construction
C. Add in any costs for donated salaried staff services, such as city gardeners
D. Convert the amount into United States Dollars (USD) if your budget is in another currency
E. Calculate 0.1% of the USD budget amount
F. If the result of letter E is greater than US $250, this is your fee (Example: If your budget is
US $400,000, you pay US $400)
G. If the amount of letter E is less than US $250, please pay ISIS minimum annual fee of US $250
The ISIS 7-year business plan
Members may pay their choice (usually the lesser), based on these calculations.
