Zoo animals also affected by climate change
Climate change has direct effects on biodiversity and as its impacts are most tangible in cities, zoos are particularly vulnerable. The service we have developed within the H2020 Climate-fit.city project helps zoos address this issue and better help their animals adapt to the changing weather. Our service also allows zoos to better manage their energy and water consumption. It also provides insights about visitor attendance while taking into account detailed and state-of-the-art climate data.
The service has been used so far by the zoo in Antwerp and among others has facilitated long term investment and tailored planning to the needs of the animals.
