|Multiple Award Winner||20|
|Receive 5 awards in the same zoo (Challenge Mode only).||(1)|
See "The Zoo Tycoon."
|Make an animal completely happy.||(9)|
This achievement requires that you make a single animal completely happy for 20 minutes and can only be done in Challenge Mode. You can check an animal's happiness by going to Edit Exhibit>Animals>View Animals, and then using the bumpers to switch between animals. To unlock this achievement, you must fill then "Animal Happiness" bar the 100% (not just into the green) and keep it there for 20 minutes. This stat is basically just the average of the other four statistics, Hunger, Cleanliness, Habitat Happiness, and Social Need. Dont focus on this achievement as it will unlock early in Challenge mode without any effort most likely.
|Research 10 items (Campaign & Challenge Modes only).|
See "Red Hot Research."
|Happy Animal Friends||25|
|Keep your average animal happiness in the Green for 20 minutes.||(1)|
This achievement requires that you keep your average animal happiness in the green for 20 consecutive minutes of real time. Average animal happiness is just that, an average of all your animal's happiness. You can check this by heading to the main gate (in zoo or tycoon view) and holding to bring up the Zoo Overview. This achievement can be done in any game mode and will probably unlock with no effort. If you are having trouble, start a Freeform zoo and build a single tropical rock mini-exhibit and fill it with three lemurs. Just monitor the happiness of your lemurs for twenty minutes, making sure to keep them in the green. This will at most involve a single refill of the cleaning or feeding stations.
|Hire a member of staff.||(1)|
This achievement requires that you hire a staff member for the first time. There are three types of staff in the game: janitors, breeding specialists, and zoo keepers. Janitor is the cheapest to research and hire when starting a zoo. You will first need to build a janitor's office, found under Facilities. Once the office is built, go to Edit Facility>Staff>Hire. Here you can select someone to hire. Once you hire your first one, the achievement will unlock. This can be done in any game mode.

|Upgrade an attraction.|
See "Upgrading is for Winners."
|Smooth Over the Cracks||5|
|Repair an attraction or enrichment.|
After you build an attraction (concession, decoration or facility) building or an enrichment in an exhibit, they will slowly degrade with time until they are broken. When you click on them, you can see their health as a stat with a wrench. Go into the respective edit screen and select repair to pop the achievement. You can repair anything. Even attractions that have 100% health. This can be done in any game mode.
|Research an item (Campaign & Challenge Modes only).|
See "Red Hot Research."

|If You Build Them||10|
|Build your 1st exhibit.|
This achievement requires that you build your first exhibit and can be done in any game mode. Head to any open area and enter the Build menu. Select the type and size of the exhibit and build it to unlock this achievement.
|You've Got to Start Somewhere||10|
|Start your first zoo.||(1)|
This achievement requires that you start a zoo for the first time and can be done in any game mode. From the Main Menu, select any game mode and as soon as it loads, the achievement will unlock.
|Have You Seen This Guy?!||25|
|Breed a color variant of an animal.||(4)|
See "One of Everything."
|One of Each||40|
|Breed every animal type.|
See "One of Everything."
|One of Everything||100|
|Breed every animal and their color variants.||(3)|
These achievements require that you breed every animal and their color variants (give birth to them, not re-breed) in the game at least one time and can be done in any game mode or combination of game modes. Let's start off with the fact that only animals you can place in the main exhibits can breed (not mini-exhibit animals). In order for animals to breed, you must have at least one male and one female of the same species in the same exhibit. Only animals that are Level 6 or higher (i.e. an adult) can breed. Breeding occurs somewhat randomly, but the odds of breeding can be increased by researching Animal Breeding in the Research Tree at the Main Gate of your zoo (which increases breeding odds for all animals in your zoo) or by assigning a breeding specialist to a specific exhibit (which only increases breeding odds for that exhibit).
This does not need to be in a single zoo, but more than likely it will be as you do not unlock the last animal until you reach maximum Fame Rating at Level 30. Zoopedia will keep track if you adopted, released, and bred each species of animal. However, it does not keep any information about color variants. For this reason, it is suggested you keep track manually all of your breeding. Specifically if you bred both the regular and color variant version of each species. You might find THIS spreadsheet created by xoAly helpful for this (it also has Xbox One exclusive animals in it however).
|No Free Refills||25|
|Refill the animal cleaning stations 250 times.|
This achievement requires that you cumulatively refill the animal cleaning stations 250 times across all your zoos and can be done in any game mode. You can refill a cleaning station by entering the Edit Exhibit menu, then clicking Exhibit Items>Animal Care, using the bumpers to highlight the station and to select it. Here you will find the refill option. The station does not need to be completely empty of water to refill it, however, it can't be full.
|Restock the feeding stations 100 times.|
This achievement requires that you cumulatively refill the animal feeding stations 100 times across all your zoos and can be done in any game mode. You can refill a feeding station by entering the Edit Exhibit menu, then clicking Exhibit Items>Animal Care, using the bumpers to highlight the station and to select it. Here you will find the refill option. The station does not need to be completely empty of food to refill it, however, it can't be full.
|Release one of every animal type into the wild.||(1)|
This achievement requires that you release at least one of every animal type into the wild across all of your zoos and can be done in any game mode. To release an animal into the wild, it must be Level 15. Animals increase in level as they age from Level 1 when they are born to a maximum of Level 15. Depending on their level of care, it will generally take around two hours of actual playtime for a single animal to go from Level 1 to 15. Once an animal is Level 15, go into Edit Exhibit>Animals>View Animals. Use the bumpers to highlight the Level 15 animal and then to select it. Choose Release to Wild and the animal will be removed from your zoo (you do not get anything). Do this for all 52 types of animals (both exhibit and mini-exhibit animals) and the achievement will unlock. Color variants are irrelevant for this achievement.
|Have a successful Viral Advertising campaign.|
This achievement requires that you deploy a viral advertising campaign for your zoo. Advertising is used to increase the amount of guests in your zoo for a period of time and can be found by selecting the Main Gate to enter the Edit Menu. From here, select Advertising and then Viral. Choose any intensity that wish and the achievement will unlock immediately. Note that Viral Advertising will not become available until you reach Fame Rating 20 and you also must research before using it.
|Clear up 1,000 pieces of poop.||(8)|
This achievement requires that you cumulatively clear 1,000 pieces of poop across all your zoos and can be done in any game mode. You can clear poop by entering the Edit Exhibit menu, clicking Poop, and then using the bumpers to highlight the individual pieces of poop and to clear them. Use the bumpers to rotate through and destroy all the poop in the exhibit. Each animal will periodically poop and it will remain on the ground until you clear it. This achievement is easier if you do not have too many zookeepers, as they will clean the poop for you, slowing your progress toward the 1,000.
|Close to the Animals||15|
|Complete all 3 interactions with the animals.||(2)|
This achievement requires that you perform all three animal interactions at least once (feeding, hosing, and sensory). See "Play Time" for more information about interactions.
|Complete 25 treat interactions.|
See "Play Time."
|Complete 25 hose interactions.|
See "Play Time."
|Play with 25 animals.|
These achievements require that you complete each interaction a cumulative total of 25 each times across all of your zoos and can be done in any game mode. There are three types of interactions: feeding, hosing, and sensory (playing). The interactions must first be built in the exhibits before you can do them. Each interaction type can only be performed on specific types of animals, so pay attention to that. For example, the hosing interaction can only be performed on elephants, bears, hippos, and rhinos. These will come naturally while playing through the game, but to get them done quick, you can repeatedly perform the same interaction on the same animal over and over until they unlock. You only need to begin the interaction; it does not need to be completed to count (i.e. you only have to feed one piece of food or hose until the green bar goes up a small amount).
|The Zoo Tycoon||50|
|Receive all 20 awards in the same zoo (Challenge Mode only).|
These achievements require that you receive all 20 awards in a single Challenge Mode zoo. Awards can be found in the Edit Main Gate Menu, under Awards, and are mostly milestones that you will naturally pass when expanding your zoo. There are awards for reaching Fame Ranking 30, adopting certain animals, building certain habitats/concessions/decorations, having all the exhibits, reaching guest rating 10,000, releasing 100 animals, and breeding 100 animals, plus several easier ones. These will all come naturally as you work through breeding animals for the "One of Everything" achievement.
|Number 1 Contender||25|
|Complete 25 Challenges (Challenge Mode only).|
See "World Heavyweight Champ."
|World Heavyweight Champ||30|
|Complete 100 challenges (Challenge Mode only).|
These achievements require that you complete a cumulative total of 1, 25, and 100 challenges across all of your Challenge Mode zoos. Challenges are usually simple tasks which frequently pop-up and must be completed within a given time. You can check your current challenges by pushing down on the from within the zoo (while not in any menus). Example challenges include taking a photo of a specific animal, hosing 3 animals, completing a buggy race, releasing or breeding a specific amount of animals, building certain decorations/concessions, and maintaining animals/guest happiness levels for a given amount of time. The whole purpose of Challenge mode is to complete challenges, so you should have no problem getting 100 completed with ease.
|Build every type of concession in the same zoo.||(3)|
This achievements requires that you build every type of concession in the same zoo in either Challenge or Campaign Modes. From the Build Menu, go to Concessions. There are 8 entertainment and 7 Food+Drink concessions to build. The last concession does not unlock until a later Fame Rating. They must all be present in the zoo simultaneously. This could be an issue with the zoo limit. Temporarily sell some other building to make room for you to quickly construct all the concessions if your zoo limit has been reached.
|Upgrading is for Winners||10|
|Upgrade an attraction to level 3.|
These achievements require that you upgrade attractions and must be done in any mode ("Upgrading is for Winners" can not be done in Freeform Mode). "We Can Make it Better" requires you upgrade any attraction to level 2, while "Upgrading is for Winners" requires you upgrade any attraction level 3 (the maximum). Attractions are anything that can be upgraded, including facilities, decorations, and concessions. Click on the attraction once it is built to enter Edit mode and then hit Upgrade. A Fame Rating near 10 is required to upgrade an attraction to level 3.
|Top of the Charts||50|
|Increase your Fame level 100 times across all your zoos.|
This achievement requires that you earn a cumulative total of 100 Fame Rating increases across all of your zoos in Campaign and Challenge modes. Fame increases in your zoo by doing just about anything that involves expansion, happy animals, or upgrades. This will unlock naturally when finishing Challenge and Campaign modes, but if you want to unnecessarily grind this, it is easiest just to keep starting zoos and advancing to level 10 or so by constructing buildings, as initially Fame level increases are quick, but slow as you expand your zoo towards the zoo limit.
|Fill a photo album.|
See "Photographer Extraordinaire."
|Fill all the photo albums.||(2)|
These achievements require that you fill all the photo albums in the game. Photo albums can be found in the Game (Pause) Menu under Albums while playing any game mode. To take photos, you must be in Zoo view (third-person of your avatar) and then push . Use the sticks to zoom-in or look around. Snap a photo with .
Use the video below to find the exact location of each coin (credit: Youtube user Amanda f).
After taking a photo of an animal or coin, make sure to push to keep it. A pop-up will come on screen stating that "You picture was saved to the __ album." It needs to say either Hidden Coin or Animal album. If it says Photo Journal instead, take the photo again. You can check the albums to see what photos you are missing from each album. Blank spots will appear for the photos you are missing.
|Phase One Complete||5|
|Complete a scenario (Campaign Mode only).|
See "Correction, the Mad SkillZ."
|You've Got the Skills||25|
|Complete 5 scenarios (Campaign Mode only).|
See "Correction, the Mad SkillZ."
|Correction, the Mad SkillZ||50|
|Complete all the scenarios (Campaign Mode only).|
These achievements require that you complete all 20 scenarios of Campaign Mode. This mode will task you with numerous objectives to complete on a limited budget and within a time limit. There are 4 scenarios labeled as Easy, 8 as Normal, and 8 as Hard. These scenarios will really test your zoo managing and multitasking skills. Most of them will likely only require one attempt to complete but a few may require a couple. Completing previous missions are sometimes needed to unlock subsequent ones. Most can be completed well under the time limit, but you will probably find yourself coming down to the wire on more than one occasion. Just keep at it, they really are not that difficult, especially after you are familiar with the game mechanics from playing Challenge Mode.
|You're Gonna Eat Lightnin'||10|
|Train a member of staff up to level 3.|
This achievement requires that you hire a staff member and upgrade them to level 3. There are three types of staff in the game: janitors, breeding specialists, and zoo keepers. Janitor is the cheapest to research and hire when starting a zoo. You will first need to build a janitor's office, found under Facilities. Once the office is built, go to Edit Facility>Staff>Hire. Here you can select someone to hire. Make sure to hire someone that is not already level 3 (the number of stars is their level). Once they are hired, select their name and then Upgrade. If you hired a level 1, you will need to upgrade twice. If you hired a level 2, you will only need to upgrade once. There is no Fame Rating requirement for upgrading staff and this can be done in any game mode.
|Are your Legs Tired?||35|
This achievement requires that you move on foot for a total of 10km. You are on foot only when in Zoo view. All of the foot travel in all of your zoos in all game modes will count towards this achievement. This will most likely come before finishing all of the other achievements in game. However, it can easily be boosted by simply running around the zoo. A solid one to two hours should net you this achievement. To help with the grind, you can simply build a structure at the very far end of your zoo so that a long, straight, and unpopulated sidewalk forms. Use this for your running.
|Time for a Tire Change||35|
This achievement requires that you drive the buggy for a total of 25km. To call for a buggy, you can push while roaming in Zoo view. Enter the buggy with . All of your driving in all of your zoos in all game modes will count towards this achievement. This will most likely come before finishing all of the other achievements in game. However, it can easily be boosted by simply driving around the zoo. A solid one to two hours should net you this achievement. To help with the grind, you can simply build a structure at the very far end of your zoo so that a long, straight, and unpopulated sidewalk forms. Use this for your driving.
|Have a guest rating of 10,000 in your zoo (Challenge Mode only).|
This achievement requires that you attain a guest rating of 10,000 in a Challenge Mode zoo. The guest rating gauges how many guests are coming to your zoo and is displayed as the number on the right in the top middle of the screen. Reaching 10,000 is quite easy and will occur somewhere around Fame Rating 20 to 25. Just keep creating exhibits, upgrading, building, decorating, and cleaning. To temporarily boost your guest rating, you can use advertising campaigns, but it is definitely not needed. Just be patient in Challenge Mode.
|Customize 50 different attractions.||(1)|
This achievement requires that you customize a cumulative total of 50 different attractions across all your zoos and can be done in any game mode. The description is misleading as it can be the same attraction over and over. The quickest and easiest way to unlock this achievement is to build any decoration or facility. Make sure you are in Tycoon view and hover over the building. Now jam the as fast as you can. Doing this will enter the Edit menu, then select Customize, then Select Trees, and finally choose a custom tree type. Quickly going through these menus to select the same tree type over and over will count towards this achievement. You can have this done in less than two minutes.
|Earning a Living||5|
|Earn $100,000 (Campaign & Challenge Modes only).|
See "A Multimillionaire, Who's Also a Ninja."
|I'm a Millionaire!||15|
|Earn $1,000,000 (Campaign & Challenge Modes only).|
See "A Multimillionaire, Who's Also a Ninja."
|A Multimillionaire who's a Ninja||30|
|Earn $10,000,000 (Campaign & Challenge Modes only).||(2)|
These achievements require that you earn a cumulative total of $100k, $1 million, and $10 million across of all of your zoos in Campaign and Challenge Modes. You do not need to have the amounts in your account at one time. Instead, they represent your lifetime revenue from your zoos. While this may initially seem like a daunting task, your progress towards these achievement will be exponential as your zoo grows and gains a larger guest rating. Most of this will be earned in Challenge Mode and you should not have to much trouble reaching this by the time you earn the rest of the achievements in the game. Once your zoo is large enough, you will be raking in hundreds of dollars per second.
|Red Hot Research||30|
|Research everything (Campaign & Challenge Modes only).||(5)|
These achievements require that you research one, ten, and every item in the game. This is cumulative across all of your Campaign and Challenge Mode zoos. Almost everything in the game requires researching, which involves the payment of a small fee and a chunk of time to unlock. To earn this achievement, you must have researched everything in the game. This includes things like exhibits, decorations, food stands, animal interactions, animals themselves, animal care stations and enrichments, advertising, and much more. The last items/animals unlock at Fame Rating 30, so dont plan on earning this achievement before then. To speed up the research times by 25%, be sure to fully research that category to Level 3 (unlocks at Fame Rating 20) in the Research Tree.
