How to find animals and wildlife in Flight Simulator 2020

In Flight Simulator 2020 there are a number of animated animals. These include:

  • Black Bears
  • Elephants
  • Flamingos
  • Geese
  • Giraffes
  • Grizzly Bears
  • Seagulls

There are animals on all continents (except Asia?), but they are scattered and therefore difficult to find without additional help.

Find wildlife

Start with the world map ...

  • Open filter
  • Points of Interest / Fauna: ON
  • preferably all the others: OFF (makes it easier to identify the fauna)
  • Close filter

Now you can see all places with animals. But you must not zoom out too far, otherwise the points will be displayed very small and can easily be overlooked.

Visit animals

The animals are not always exactly at the point where they are shown on the world map. Therefore you should additionally activate the marker to show you animals also in flight:
