The 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal gets started today, so get ready to celebrate for all the mothers out there!

Read to uncover more about this Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal! Don’t forget upon completing the seasonal, refresh your game to see the final Ultra Rare animal and place from your storage.

Similar to previous seasonal, there are two parts to this 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal. The first part is inviting guests to your Zoo. The second part – constructing the Dr Zoolittle’s Motherly Waterfall Buildable – will give you a free Ultra-Rare animal to stay in your Zoo when you complete it!

Getting Ready:

When you log into your Zoo, you’ll find a new friend waiting for you at the dock, ready to start the 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal. Click on the animal to bring up the 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal.

2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal Menu:

From here, you can see what animal guests have been unlocked, choose an animal to help, collect items, and ask friends to help invite these 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal guests to your Zoo!

The 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal has a story to tell! Each time you invite a new guest to your Zoo, you’ll unlock a new part of Dr. Zoo Little’s story. View the story panels you’ve unlocked so far by clicking the “View Story” button in the 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal menu.

Have questions about how to complete the seasonal? Just click on the “How To” button in the 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal Menu for an overview of how to complete the seasonal.

Use the countdown timer so you can see exactly how much time is left for the seasonal. Initially, the timer will show how many days are left. When there are only 2 days left, the timer will start to countdown in hours, minutes, and seconds.

Inviting Animal Guests:

Every 3 days, new Mother’s Day guests will be unlocked for you to help! There are a total of 7 guests in this 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal. As with past celebrations, you will need to help the first animal to get the second, and then help the second animal before getting the third, and so forth. New animals will unlock every three days, but you will need to invite the previous animal before preparing the next.

The Mother’s Day guests will help you complete the Dr Zoolittle’s Motherly Waterfall Buildable to attract the special guest to your Zoo! Read more below to find out how to get this special Ultra-Rare guest to appear in your Zoo!

You will need to collect special items to invite these guests to your Zoo. These items are the A bundle of Roses, A bundle of Lilacs, A bundle of Orchids, A bundle of Irises, A bundle of Carnations, A bundle of Jasmines and A bundle of Lilies. Each of these can be collected in different ways, and each animal requires a different number of each material.

Collect the 2 seasonal items, the Mother’s Day Scented Candle and Mother’s Day Homemade Cookies from correctly answering the Daily Quiz.

You will have a random but equal chance of collecting either of these 2 items this way.

Collect the Mother’s Day Card, Mother’s Day Bouquet and Mother’s Day Tea Set through gifting with friends or feed posts.

  • You can post to the Facebook feed asking for help 4 times per day per item, or once every 6 hours.
  • Your friend can only click once on each post to help. They will receive an item themselves for helping!
  • Feed posts expire after 24 hours, so act quickly!
  • You can send your friends free Mother’s Day Card, Mother’s Day Bouquet and Mother’s Day Tea Set from the Free Gifts page to help them prepare their own Mother’s Day adventure, too! A player can send one request to a friend each day.

Collect the Mother’s Day Scented Candle and Mother’s Day Homemade Cookies by visiting your friends’ zoos.

  • Click on the boat dock in your friends’ zoos for a chance to collect a Mother’s Day Scented Candle and Mother’s Day Homemade Cookies.
  • There’s a greater chance of getting the Mother’s Day Scented Candle, but don’t get discouraged if you receive the Mother’s Day Homemade Cookies. It’s all part of the fun!
  • You can collect from the same friend once every day. You’ll receive one item per visit. A countdown timer will show when the 24 hours are up and you can visit that friend again.

Once you have enough items, click on the “Complete” button to invite the guest into your Zoo. You no longer have to wait for 10 friends to help you invite guests into your Zoo. Congratulations, you’ve invited your first guest! Your 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal is well under way.

If the button is gray, that means that either you do not have enough items to invite the guest yet, or the animal is still locked.

Make sure to take the time to Check-in:

Are you short on a few items to invite to your Mother’s Day adventure? Click on the dock to “check-in” every five minutes (and even earn XP)! For every 3 check-ins you complete, you will receive one free Mother’s Day item of your choice!

Rewards and Upgrades:

You will receive two (2) of every animal you invite into your Zoo to place on your island. All the basic animals are Rare. When you invite a new guest into your Zoo, you will have the option to upgrade your Rare animal to an Ultra Rare. Upgrading your pair of animals will cost Wildlife Points.

If you decide not to upgrade right away, don’t worry! You can upgrade your Rare Mother’s Day guests to Ultra-Rares at any time during the promotion by clicking on the animal in your Zoo. The pop-up will have a button that allows you to upgrade. Once the promotion ends, you will no longer be able to upgrade your Rares to Ultra-Rares.

Note: You will be able to feed, collect hearts from, and breed Mother’s Day guests only AFTER the seasonal ends (i.e. when auto-trade begins).

Upgrading your Rares to Ultra-Rares has an additional advantage! As you’ll read below, your Mother’s Day guests are busy at work making materials for you to complete your Dr Zoolittle’s Motherly Waterfall Buildable. Ultra-Rare Mother’s Day guests make buildable materials 25% faster than their Rare counterparts! Instead of getting materials from the Probing Bilby every 6 hours, your Ultra-Rare will give you one every 4 hours! Speed up your 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal completion by upgrading your Rare guests to Ultra-Rares!

How to Complete Your Dr Zoolittle’s Motherly Waterfall Buildable:

The first time you open the 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal Menu, you will receive the Dr Zoolittle’s Motherly Waterfall Buildable Frame. An adventure like this isn’t complete with just guests; you’ll need something much more festive to attract the special guest! You’ll be asked to place the base in your Zoo after you close the menu.

Your Mother’s Day guests bring more than just fun into your Zoo this time around! Each guest will make a special material that you need to complete the Dr Zoolittle’s Motherly Waterfall Buildable.  It takes each guest a different amount of time to make their materials; you’ll notice that each animal has a timer letting you know how long until its item is ready to collect.

Here are all the items you’ll be collecting from your guests:

  • A bundle of Roses– Get from the Mother and Daughter Koalas and Mother and Daughter Emperor Penguins.
  • A bundle of Lilacs – Get from the Motherly Swans and Mommy and Calf American Bisons.
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 04/19!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 04/21!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 04/23!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 04/25!
  • ??? – Get from a guest to be revealed on 05/27!

Reminder: Ultra-Rare guests produce materials 25% faster than the Rare guests! Upgrade your guests to complete your buildable more quickly!

When the animal is ready to be collected, the readied material will glow above its head. Click to accept the item. Invite all the guests into your Zoo to collect all the materials you need to complete your 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal. When the buildable is completed, the Mother’s Day guest will appear!

Under the 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal Menu:

Click on the Dr Zoolittle’s Motherly Waterfall Buildable Frame to open the Buildable Menu.

Here, you can see what stage your buildable has been completed to and the number of materials you need to reach the next stage, as well as tips as to which guests will give you what materials.

Feeling impatient? You can buy buildable materials for WLP to speed up the completion of your Dr Zoolittle’s Motherly Waterfall Buildable!

Once you’ve finished putting together the 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal animals, complete with the Dr Zoolittle’s Motherly Waterfall Buildable and all the guests properly invited, the special guest will be so impressed that it’ll choose your Zoo to reveal its secret identity. But that’s not the final surprise! The mystery guest is an extra-special Ultra Rare animal you get to keep in your Zoo forever as a souvenir when you complete Dr. Zoo Little’s 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal! Remember to refresh upon completion to see the new Ultra Rare completion animal!

This means that if you decide not to upgrade any of your animals for WLP, you can still work hard, complete the seasonal, and get a free Ultra Rare to keep. To find out what that is, start the adventure!

Getting Started for the 2017 Mother and Daughter Days Seasonal:

For this seasonal we will have 2 animals are unlocked right away pictured next to their Ultra Rare upgrade counterparts.  These are ready for you to start collecting items for:

  • Mother and Daughter Koalas : Mother and Daughter Emperor Penguins

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Players voted and… who won? Come here to find out!

A couple weeks back, we posted a poll on our fan page, forum and Twitter asking players to vote which country we should spotlight next on our tour. Before we dive into the winning location, here’s a quick recap of all the exotic locales we’ve seen: we started off in India and zipped around the world to Madacascar, Costa Rica and Russia. Now… according to this poll, 44% of our players want to visit New Zealand next! Thanks for participating and voting, everyone. As always, we love hearing your feedback and are so happy to have all our players’ input in the game.

It came as no surprise to us that New Zealand quickly took the lead in our poll. With its lush greenery, mountains, and rain forests, it’s always been a tourists’ dream. The word New Zealand itself means “Land of the long white cloud.” A relaxing name like that is sure to attract a large number of visitors each year. If you do decide to visit, please know the word “Kiwi” not only refers to New Zealand’s native flightless bird, but is also a slang term for a New Zealander. Let’s dive right in and embrace the Kiwi spirit. Here are all the great New Zealand animals and items you’ll soon see in your Zoo!

    

    

Rares: (from left to right) Archey’s Frog, Hector’s Dolphin, Kea, Long-Tailed Bat, Sooty Shearwater, and the Weta.

   

   

Ultra Rares: (from left to right) Great Spotted Kiwi, Haast’s Eagle, Kakapo, and the Tuatara.

   

Kiosks: (from left to right) Heitiki Kiosk and the Pavlova Kiosk

      

Decorations: (from left to right) Hei matau, New Zealand flag, and Warenui

There you have it! We hope you enjoy seeing all your votes come to life with our latest release. Enjoy your stay in New Zealand, Zookeepers!

Costume Party Babies!

It’s time to shine the spotlight and roll out the red carpet! These Costume Party Babies are ready for their debut. Its these babies’ very first Halloween and they’ve worked extra hard on their ensembles to impress you and all your visitors. From candy corn  and cheese to insects and mermaids, here’s your chance to celebrate Halloween with these fashion-forward cuties!

Starting today, October 11th, you’ll find a new Gifting Tree appear near your dock. Click on it to find these creatively costumed critters waiting for you to gift to all your friends. Here are all the new Rare and Ultra Rare “Babies on Parade” you can gift to your friends’ Zoos as a “Thank You” gift during this holiday season:

  

 

Rares: (from left to right) Baby Candy Corn Bat, Baby Cheese Mouse, Baby Crayon Red Panda, Baby Ladybug Pig, and Baby Peanut Pika.

  

Ultra Rares: (from left to right) Baby Caterpillar Flower, Baby Chick Peapod, Baby Ghost Squid, Baby Kitten Mermaid, and the Cutesie Roll Pug

In the meantime, enjoy the fanfare as these lively, dressed-up babies march and dance through the paths of your Zoo! Happy Halloween, everyone!

Zoo World Travels to Russia!

We hope you didn’t pack your passport away because it’s time for us to take off again! Dust the white sand from Costa Rica off and put on your warmest hat and pair of mittens, we’re heading to Russia.

Russia is the largest country in the world, takes up 1/8 of the entire world’s landmass and covers nine different time zones. Due to its tremendous size, it borders more neighbors than any other country in the world, along with 22 different bodies of water. Russia is also the home of the oldest mountain the world, the Urals, and the deepest lake in the world, Lake Baikal. Its expansive area allows visitors to travel from volcanoes to tundras and deserts to glaciers, and every other landscape imaginable.

Next on our tour? Costa Rica!

Costa Rica is often ranked as a world’s top destination for surfing, fishing, diving, and mountain hiking. On our stop here, you’re in for an adventure while surrounded by sun, beaches, mountains, and volcanoes. Be prepared to get lost in Costa Rican rain forests and you’ll soon discover why Costa Rica literally translates to the “Rich Coast” in Spanish.

National Parks and Environmental Protection areas make up for 25% of the total land in Costa Rica. This means, Zookeepers, we’ve arrived at a perfect place to explore and learn about new animals! Costa Rica is home to more than 5% of the world’s biodiversity. This means there are more than 200 species of mammals, 9,000 species of plants, and 34,000 species of insects (just to name a few) that call Costa Rica their home. Let’s keep on learning a bit more about this unique country before we show you what animals, kiosks and decorations will show up in your Zoo!

Costa Rica is not only rich in landscape, but also culture and history. Costa Rica prides itself on being the “Land of Peace” as they have had over 100 years of political stability and is the only country without an army or military of any kind. In 1949, they decided to abolish their National Army to invest their resources more in education and other improvements to benefit the people.
