AWARE's model has been designed to help animal care communities to deepen their understanding of
their population and programs. Our projects yield information on the prevalence of welfare outcomes,
allow for in-depth understanding of the range and diversity in management practices, highlight
opportunities to enhance welfare, and inform the development of guidelines or standards.
Clients begin by setting up their zoo profile, which provides background information on animals and facilities (A).
On a daily basis participants document practice using the Daily Management Tool and collect welfare outcome data using
"on the fly" via mobile web-applications (B) or at a desktop (C). The AWARE software system synthesizes input and animal
outcome data (D) to provide users with reports, metrics, and performance indicators (E). Synthesized data can be used to
guide future planning, assist program development, or to conduct research (F).
