Tracks Software to Help Turtle Survival Alliance Protect Endangered Species

Tracks Software recently donated a software license to the Turtle Survival Alliance, a global partnership committed to zero turtle extinctions in the 21st century.

TSA, based in Fort Worth, Texas, will use Tracks Software to manage vital turtle data, as it continues to protect critically endangered freshwater turtles and tortoises. Access to the integrated animal information supported by Tracks Software instantly gives TSA staff the husbandry, inventory, medical, diet and feeding data they need to meet their conservation goals.

TSA President, Rick Hudson said, “This is a huge contribution to the success of the Turtle Survival Center and to making sure our records are integrated with those of AZA institutions.  And this will help ensure data quality for this important collection.”

 “Tracks excels at managing data from many sources and keeping it accessible for decision-making and animal care, which makes Tracks and TSA a great match. As a company, we’re committed to supporting conservation efforts and we’re pleased to provide TSA with a software license,” said Tony Niemann, project director at Zier Niemann Consulting, developer of Tracks Software.

Rick Hudson spoke at the 2014 Annual Conference of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums in the session entitled “SAFE: Saving Animals from Extinction."
