Keep your bunnies alive as you embark on a quest for the Magic Carrot! The game is played with cards and 12 sided dice.

Wildlife Rescue succeeds at creating a compelling game that also draws attention to the plight of 8 endangered animals from
around the world. The dice themselves show images of these animals instead of numbers. The cards contain stunning photographs of the animals along with facts about their habitat, characteristics and endangered status. The game is equal parts entertaining and educational.
Each player acts as a conservation officer intent on collecting endangered species. Rolling 3 of a kind allows a player to collect a wildlife card for that species. Each species card contains a different point value. To win, a player needs to collect the highest scoring hand of wildlife cards. "Zoo Collection" cards and "zoo transfer" cards add strategy to the game, with players able to earn bonus points or take a species card from another opponent.
