Microsoft and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums are teaming up to give back to the care and protection of Sumatran tigers.

Every time a player completes a chosen Community Challenge for Zoo Tycoon, Microsoft will donate $10,000 to a wildlife-oriented charity, Sumatran tigers are up first.

As explained in the developers diary, Frontier Developments demonstrates and showcases various methods of how the studio studied the behavior of animals and zoos to create the most realistic looking animals for the game.

The video also showcases the game’s Zoopedia, that helps educate players about the animals they are using.

Former genius and a woman of mystery and power, whose power is exceeded only by her mystery, Dana Abercrombie has been playing video games since birth (yes birth...we did say "genius"). Despite her secret desire of wanting to give it all up to become a gorgeous billionaire, Dana is most passionate about video games and films often times getting in many heated debates resulting in being thrown out of many gatherings.
