The Aviary Database Project can be described as an information-sharing resource being developed to support zoo profesionals in selecting aviaries suitable to their needs when revising their masterplan and renovating bird exhibits.

This information-sharing resource is designed as a tool for exchanging knowledge and experiences in designing and constructing aviaries, and selecting the best aviary for the species in question and for the geographic location. Zoos may be able to avoid expensive mistakes and optimize their possibilities by sharing information on aspects such as costs, visitor viewing, suitable materials, design features etc.
