A new year, a new hope, a new wish… Is there an threatened animal species that has a special place in your heart, one you would love to see downgraded on the IUCN Red List? RTZI offers you a chance to make your dreams come true!


Our challenge has two parts. You can do both or just one of them. First, select a threatened species of your choice. This species must be on the IUCN Red List and must have a Vulnerable (VU), Endangered (EN), Critically Endangered (CR) or Extinct in the Wild (EW) status. The selected species must be approved in this topic before you can start your challenge. You must be a member of RTZI to participate. If you are not, join us soon!


Challenge part I : Build an exhibit.
- (1) Your exhibit must have (a) an on-show area and (b) off-show area ; we must see both.
- (2) Your exhibit must enhance the welfare and well-being of your species.
- (3) Your exhibit may be a mixed-species exhibit ; it is not an obligation.
- (4) Your exhibit must be realistic (ex. no arctic animal in an outdoor Saharan exhibit ; no predator/prey mixed exhibit ; if your species is barely found in captivity, it will probably be kept in a single-species exhibit even if it’s a small non-predatory bird ; etc.).
- (5) Take a minimum of 10 pictures of the exhibit (no maximum, but be sensible).
- (6) Show your entry in your Press room.
- (7) Post a link in the topic RTZI 2018 Wishes - Exhibit Building in the RTZI Zoo Challenges subforum.
- (8) You have until Sunday, January 28th, to post your entry.

When your entry is accepted, you will receive a pair of the species you selected and 100,000ZP.


Challenge part II : Field Report.
- (1) You must go on the field and document how your threatened species manages to survive there.
- (2) Your field report must show (a) the natural habitat of your species ; (b) at least two issues your species if facing in its habitat ; (c) at least two natural behaviors of your species in the wild ; (d) what could be done to help this species to survive. If your species is Extinct in the Wild (EW), “c” is obviously not needed. However, “d” must be focused on suggesting at least two conservation actions needed to reintroduce your species in the wild (ex. establishment of safe zones excluding introduced mammals).
- (3) Your entry must be realistic (ex. Polar Bear don’t live in rainforest).
- (4) Take a minimum of 10 pictures of the exhibit (no maximum, but be sensible).
- (5) Show your entry in your Press room.
- (6) Post a link in the topic RTZI 2018 Wishes - Field Report in the RTZI Zoo Challenges subforum.
- (7) You have until Sunday, January 28th, to post your entry.

When your entry is accepted, you will receive 500 pointies and a pair of a threatened species of your choice.


Challenge part III : Let the vote begin!
After Sunday, January 28th, your humble RTZI managers will take all the Endangered New Year – Exhibit building entries and create a poll to see which exhibit is the best according to our fellow TRT members! Everyone on the forum will have until the end of the month of January to vote for the best entry.

Prizes:
  • 1st place: an extra super special silhouette for your pointies zoo + two pairs of a species of your choice + 100,000ZP.
  • 2nd place: a super special silhouette for your pointies zoo + two pairs of a species of your choice.
  • 3rd place: a special silhouette for your pointies zoo + a pair of a species of your choice.



    From the RTZI team, good luck to everyone and a happy New Year!

A little RTZI activity can never hurt... :D

Could I join with the three-wattled bellbird? Its IUCN status is Vulnerable, and the S.W.M.A. would be interested in helping with their conservation!

MICT and the Hell-Bourg Lemur Center would like to participate in this challenge using the Sanford's Lemur. We currently house a pair of males and we find this a great opportunity to get information out about them.

NEZS would like to participate using the Mindoro bleeding-heart dove. It is currently listed as Critically endangered by the I.U.C.N and it is on dire straits.

P.S since we don't have it in-game, I'll be using Samuel's Mindoano bleeding-heart as a substitute.

Ryebury would like to participate with the Clouded Leopard, which is currently listed as Vulnerable. This species is rarely seen in the wild and we want to help with their conservation, to understand more about their hidden lifestyle.
