To start trapping Animals & Birds in this game, you first need to get the Trapping Licence. You can buy it for 500 Permit Points. Once you get this license you will be able to craft different Animal Traps. These will be needed to actually capture animals or birds depending on the trap. Next, you need Animal Collection Point, this will allow you to send the trapped animal to the Animal Research Centre. The Centre will then reward you for your efforts in exchange for the in-game currency. Here is how you can get the license and start crafting the structures.

  1. Go and talk to Fletch.
  2. Next, choose “I want to apply for a licence”.
  3. She will then give you several license options to choose from. Scroll down and purchase the Trapping Licence.
  4. It costs 500 Permit Points.
  5. Once you get the license you will unlock two new crafting recipes and they are:
    • Animal Collection Point: Drop the animals you trap here to get rewards. To craft it you need:
      • Palm Wood Plank: 2
      • Hard Wood Plank: 2
      • Nails: 1
    • Simple Animal Trap: It allows you to trap and capture animals. To craft it you need:
      • Tin Bar: 1
      • Mangrove Stick: 8
      • Old Spring: 1
  6. After you have crafted both of the above structures. Place the Animal Collection Point near your house or base. It should make it easier for you to drop animals there, but you can also place it anywhere you like.
  7. Next, carry the Simple Animal Trap and look for the animal that you want to trap.
  8. Once you find the animal you want to capture, use it and it will set the trap.
  9. Wait for a while, so that the animal enters the trap. A tip here is to go away from the trap, this will let the animal move freely in the area. This can then lead to it getting trapped faster.
  10. After you find the animal in the cage, simply pick it up and go to the collection point.
  11. Drop the cage in the Animal Collection Point and you will see it fly away.
  12. Check your mailbox the next day and you should get a mail from the Animal Research Centre about receiving the animal. You will also get your reward in this same mail.
