Zoo Tycoon, one of the more low-key launch titles for the Xbox One, is offering players ways to help real-world animals. According to the Xbox Wire, Microsoft Studios is letting the player community vote on which of three challenges they can participate in. When the community attains the goal of the winning challenge, Microsoft and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums will make a donation to the related charity. The three charities are Rhino Rescue, Komodo Survival Program, and Tiger Species Survival Program.
Release 1,000 Rhinos to the wild in Zoo Tycoon and Microsoft and AZA will donate $10,000 to help protect and deter further poaching of rhino horns in Africa.
Adopt 1,000 Komodo Dragons in Zoo Tycoon and Microsoft and AZA will donate $10,000 to support the Komodo Survival Program’s work with the Indonesian Government to protect this species.
Release 1,000 Sumatran Tigers into the wild in Zoo Tycoon and Microsoft and AZA will donate $10,000 to the Tiger Species Survival Program to help reduce the number of Sumatran Tigers killed, displaced or caught in snares.
Zoo Tycoon’s challenge voting can be found in-game within the community features.
