Buildings serve 3 purpose in the game: collecting money, running the zoo and participate to club activities. To help run the zoo, players have to build an administrative building for the employees and a breeding center for the animals. To collect money, besides the admissions booth, players can build carts, shops and stores. To participate to club activities, players have to build a clubhouse. All buildings can be upgraded to be more efficient.

Administrative Building[edit | edit source]

Main Zoo Administrative Building

The administrative building allows the player to hire gardeners, garbage collectors and zookeepers. When built, there are 5 slots available, and more slots can be purchased with diamonds (5 diamonds per slot) for a total of 60 slots (275 diamonds).


Main Zoo[edit | edit source]

When unlocked, 3 employees are given for free for 7 days. More free employees are given each month (1 of each for 7 days). To get more employees or to keep them longer, players have to recruit them with diamonds. The cost of an employee depends on the duration of the contract: 14 diamonds for 7 days, 49 diamonds for 30 days and 126 diamonds for 90 days. Teams of 3 employees can also be recruited.


Fir Grove Zoo[edit | edit source]

Fir Grove Administrative Building

Fir Grove has its own administrative building, meaning the employees from your main zoo can't be used here once actived in your main zoo. You need to hire them seperately.

Once built, 5 employee slots are unlocked for free and more slots can be bought for 5 diamonds.


Tip: There is an achievement for the number of employees hired at the same time (first rank for 5 employees). So players who want to get all achievements have to either save up lots of diamonds for a very long time or invest real money.

Breeding center[edit | edit source]

The breeding center, as its name suggests, is for breeding animals. In addition to the breeding center, animals need to have access to a shelter of a sufficient level.


Main Zoo[edit | edit source]

Main Zoo Breeding Center

When the building is unlocked, 2 slots are available. To be able to breed more animals at the same time, more slots can be purchased with diamonds up to 12 slots.

Breeding slot Cost
1 Free
2 Free
3 15 diamonds
4 20 diamonds
5 25 diamonds
6 30 diamonds
7 35 diamonds
8 40 diamonds
9 60 diamonds
10 80 diamonds
11 100 diamonds
12 125 diamonds

A breeding can be started either by tapping on the shelter or from the breeding center if a breeding slot is available. Breeding costs coins, and the cost can be doubled once to add the base percentage again to the total. Players can also spend diamonds once to increase the percentage again. During the breeding, the parents can't be sold, released or removed from the enclosure.

If the breeding fails, the player is informed with a message, and a bonus percentage on an incremental basis is added to the next breeding of the same species. For instance, if the goat has a 16% chance of success but failed, the next try will have a 16+16=32% chance of success. If it fails again, the 3rd try will be 32+16=48%, and so on.

If the breeding is successful, a young animal is added to the enclosure (if enough space and if the enclosure is clean) or to the inventory. A young animal will grow to adulthood 7 days later. If the parents had the same level (i.e. level 2 animals) then the young one is one level above (i.e. level 3 young). After a successful breeding, the bonus percentage is canceled.

Whatever the result, the breeding slot won't be available for 8 hours (officially for cleaning purpose).


Fir Grove Zoo[edit | edit source]

Fir Grove Breeding Center

Fir Grove has it's own breeding center and once built will have 2 breeding slots opened. In total you can get 8 breeding slots.

Clubhouse[edit | edit source]

Clubhouse.JPG

Clubhouse were added to the game in May 2019.The building costs 20,000 coins and takes 12 hours to complete. Players can then look for clubs to join or create a club and recruit club members (up to 5 members for a level 1 club). Club members' zoo can be visited anytime. A club chat allow conversations between members.

Club members can participate to two kind of activities:

  • Fundraising campaigns, with rewards such as club events, stamps for the club chat, or experience points to increase the member club level
  • Contests, to gain experience to increase the club level.


Transport Station[edit | edit source]

Transport Station.jpg

The transport station was added on 24 February 2021 and costs 50 diamonds. It allows you to travel between zones/zoos. This gives you access to Fir Grove Zoo, a zoo we will help manage. You can use anything from the main zoo here and to transport it, place the items and/or animals in your inventory and use the transport station to go to your other zoo.

The transport station is unlocked at level 61 by 2 simple quests, quest 1 which requires you to release 4 forest animals:


And the quest after completing the first will ask you to build the transport station and use it. You have to wait until level 61,5 to get this quest.

Visitor Center[edit | edit source]

Main Zoo Visitor Center

Zoo statistics.JPG
Animal overview.JPG

Fir Grove Visitor Center

The visitor center was added in July 2019 and costs 30 diamonds. The building provides multiple services:

  • Zoo statistics:
  • Collections
  • Animal Reference

Collections allow us to attain special coats for certain animals. The Animal Reference allows us to know what is in each enclosure. Zoo statistics shows stats for your zoo.


Fir Grove has it's own Visitor Centre, so you can see the Zoo Statistics of that zoo. It does not change anything for Collections.

1 The description says level 10, but it's more likely the number of level 20 animals.

  • Animal overview:

Enclosure overview.JPG

The animal overview allows the player to check the enclosures (there is a biome filter to find animals more easily). The information available are:

  1. Number of placed animals / Maximum number of animals
  2. Highest level of placed animal
  3. Icons: Colored icons mean there is at least 1 corresponding item in the enclosure. Grey icons mean the item is missing.

When clicking/tapping on the animal, the screen moves to focus on the enclosure to help players find it more quickly.

Admissions Booth[edit | edit source]

Main Zoo Admissions Booth

The admissions booth collects the entrance fee for each visitor, so the more visitor the more money it produces. Like every building collecting money, there is a maximum capacity to encourage frequent connections. Upgrading the building will result in an increased capacity.

Toilets and Trash cans[edit | edit source]

Two items included in the building menu for purchase are toilets and trash cans. These act more as decorations in function, but are accessed through the Building menu.

Toilets[edit | edit source]

Outhouse.PNG

Toilets, which look like outhouses, allow your visitors to... be more comfortable at your zoo. Toilets don't require maintenance and are not required to be placed along a path. They provide "visitor points" which increases the number of visitors at your zoo. Toilets come in three types. Each time appears is visually identical to the others with only a color change. Initially only plain (brown) toilets are available with red and blue being unlocked later in the game.

Color Cost Visitor Pts.
Brown 325 coins 13
Red 750 coins 30
Blue 8 diamonds 80

Trash Cans[edit | edit source]

Trash.PNG

Visitor generate trash as they are visiting your zoo. They will try to find a trash can to put the trash in, but if they can't, or if all trash cans in an area are full they will drop the trash on path ways. Trash on path ways reduces visitor points and makes your visitor more likely to leave and not spend money in shops. Because of this Trash should be picked up and cans emptied when full. (You can hire a zoo employee, the worker, to pick up trash when you're not actively playing the game.)

Bird trash can.JPG
Panda trash can.JPG

Initially only plain (brown) trash cans are available with red, blue, panda and bird being unlocked later in the game. Each subsequent color/theme can hold more trash before it's full.

Color Cost Amount held
Brown 100 coins 10 pieces
Red 300 coins 20 pieces
Blue 1 diamond 30 pieces
Panda 5,000 coins 40 pieces
Penguin 8 diamonds 40 pieces
Dolphin 15 diamonds 40 pieces
Parrot 20 diamonds 40 pieces
