Wildlife: America is a simulation game where the player works at a wild animal rehab facility and cares for sick and injured animals as they are brought in. The player cleans the cages, feeds and waters the animals, provides medical care, and eventually places them with zoos or releases them back into the wild. 

When each animal comes in, they have a chart that lists all of their statistics, from weight to disposition to health conditions. The player uses this to determine how much food to feed the animal, and which type of medical care to provide.  Animals will sometimes even give birth while in your facility, allowing you to care for the mother and her children as well. Successfully taking care of the animals allows the player to earn coins which can be spent on upgrades for the grounds or for the animal enclosures themselves.

Wildlife: America is available for free but certain features, such as unlocking all the animal types, require in-app purchases. 

Wildlife: North America helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Focus: Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks. 

Each animal who comes into the rescue center needs individualized care. Your character cannot go home for the day until all the animals have been fed, had their cages cleaned, and were provided with medicine. The player needs to use their focusing skills to stay on task and not focus on just one animal or one type of animal. For players who struggle with focusing skills, the game will remind you of your tasks if you try to leave too early before you’ve accomplished all of your tasks. 

Organization: Organizing and managing one’s own environment and possessions. 

There are many different tasks that need to be completed every day in the animal shelter and the player needs to use organizational skills to successfully complete them. The player needs to check on every animal, look at their notes to assess their health and happiness levels, and then go about feeding, cleaning, and providing medical care to each of them. For example, if a skunk is brought into the facility that is underweight, this will affect the amount of food you give them. If they have a rash, this will affect the medical treatment you provide. The player needs to be organized and use the proper tools and in the correct amount in order to rehabilitate the animals as quickly as possible.
