San Francisco Zoo & Gardens is home to more than 2,000 exotic, endangered, and rescued animals in 100 acres of majestic and peaceful gardens located directly on the Pacific Coast. The mission of San Francisco Zoo & Gardens is to connect people with wildlife, inspire caring for nature, and advance conservation action.
San Francisco Zoo & Gardens is proud to be accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). Accreditation with AZA comes with many responsibilities, including proper records management. Ingrid Russell, Curator of Animal Collections, states, “We’re required to properly store animal records and share them with fellow AZA accredited zoos. That drove a paper digitization initiative. After exploring several options, we selected BMI Imaging.”
