The Wildlife Sanctuary is a game feature which mainly lets players collect experience points when feeding wildlife animals. It is unlocked at reputation level 3 and is located on the far right of the town.
Building the sanctuary
To access the sanctuary, players need to have one strip of land touching the sanctuary. They also need to repair the book stand in order to access the log book.
In order to unlock any of the animals, players need to collect puzzle pieces, displayed and stored in the log book.
Each animal requires 36 puzzle pieces to be unlocked. One animal is randomly given for free when unlocking the log book.
These puzzle pieces are obtainable through mystery boxes, special boat shipments and derbies. Only boats which have a puzzle logo on the dock can reward players with a puzzle piece. They go directly into the log book and do not occupy space in the barn, and the log book stays open to indicate one or more pieces have been added. Which animal gets a puzzle piece is completely at random (i.e. the first maybe for the Grey Elephant and the second may be for the Brown Hippo); however, the first animal of each type must be unlocked before a puzzle piece is given for the second animal of that type.
There are three types of animals available in the log book:
Each type of animal comes in two colors.

Main article: Town Visitors
Some town visitors wish to see a particular animal at the end of their stay in a player's town. You can see which one want to visit them in the town hall with a paw print symbol. When players have the specified animal, the visitor will go and watch the animal for a short while, make a comment (shown briefly in a bubble above the visitor's head), then leave an extra gift next to the book stand. The gift can be diamonds, coins, vouchers, or any one of the supplies offered in the game.
Players can see in advance which animal the visitor wants to see using the Town Hall.
Only visitors brought in by the Eggspress Train may wish to see the sanctuary and they must be fully served. Rejected visitors will go directly to the Train Station.
