No, only persons that are professional involved in the zoological field
are allowed to be a user. That means: zoos, reliable animal-suppliers,
zoo-animal-consultants, private breeding centers, rescue-centers,
sanctuaries etc. Circus and research-institutes will not be allowed to
use our data-bank.
If you are looking for an animal to keep as a pet, you also need to
search for another website; but privately-owned parrot-centers and other
breeding-centers, not open for the public, are welcome too.
No, your profile will be approved by the administrator; in case your
details are conform our conditions you will receive a log-in code. If your profile does not match, IZS can deny you for being a user without
providing the reason.
The other users will not see your personal name or the name of your
institution. Your surplus and wanted records will be shown to others users
besides the details of the animals, only details about the country or
continent where you are located and what kind of institution you are. Other details are never shown in the website and are only used for our administrator.
We would like to know if your institution is suitable to participate in
our website; other users also would like to know to whom they offer their
animals or from which type of source the animals are originated.
