Cumberland, Ohio — The Wilds and five other animal organizations work together to protect and protect rhinos.
Together, the organization formed the American Institute of Psi Science (AIRS). It says wildlife is a model for saving species offsite or outside of its natural habitat.
AIRS will focus on zoo rhino research needs identified by the Zoo Aquarium Association (AZA) Rhinoceros Research Council in 2019.
- Relationship between physical fitness and its health
- Iron storage in rhino browsing
- Successful breeding
- Behavioral and environmental factors that maximize rhino well-being
Over the next three years, scientists will study overlapping subjects within each category to see the effects across all four categories.
Part of AIRS’goal is to provide affordable and feasible management recommendations to veterinarians and animal welfare staff at 74 AZA facilities that care for rhinos.
AIRS consists of The Wilds, the Cincinnati Zoo’s Endangered Wildlife Conservation Research Center, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, George Mason University, South Africa’s Southeastern Zoo Regeneration and Conservation Alliance, and Stellenbosch University.

Dan Beectem, Head of Animal Care at The Wilds, says the AIRS Union will help maximize efforts to help rhinos.
Dan Beetem, Head of Animal Care at The Wilds, said:
The AIRS team was made possible by a national leadership grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
