Alicia as an in-game helper evokes bad memories of the paper clip from Microsoft Office. Refreshingly, Dr. Alicia's help advice is accurate and appropriate even after the scripted tutorial has ended. All of Wildlife Refuge's graphics are consistent with the safari theme. Menus open and close smoothly and the transition between Refuge and Exploration is quick. Wildlife Refuge offers both a high and low quality graphics setting and the low quality option will run painlessly on even a cheap netbook. Sony generates revenue from Wildlife Refuge through the purchase of "Station Cash" with real money. Station Cash, shown in-game as an "SC" symbol is the same color and shape as the normal coins. This has the effect of devaluing the SC items and making it entirely possible to mis-click and spend valuable SC by mistake. This is a minor annoyance, but as only a small percentage of players will invest in SC, confusing Station Cash with normal coins will be meaningless to most gamers. The social interaction features of Wildlife Refuge will be familiar to fans of any popular Facebook game.

Key habitat restoration and improvement by initiating projects to restore or enhance existing habitats and with land acquisition by purchasing land or conservation easement that is important to GCN species are also included in the Pennsylvania Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy. Wildlife conservation actions also include population management by directly manipulating GCN species population with restocking, translocation and harvest management, with public relations and education by increasing public awareness of GCN species and key habitats through education and public outreach. The Northern Marianas Islands Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy also includes actions to treat abatement by mitigating existing threats including pollution, predation and competing species and with other conservation action plans that have not been covered previously. Monitoring the Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy in Pennsylvania will begin with the employment of existing inventories and surveys, which includes any monitoring done by conservation partners. Monitoring will continue with surveys, remote sensing, satellite imagery, disease and movement monitoring, breeding site survey sampling, DNA and net sampling, herpetological web site, predictive modeling, ground truthing and taxonomic affinities an reclassification. Population, habitat and project-level monitoring are also included in the Pennsylvania CWCS as well as distribution information, length frequency distributions, community-level monitoring and replication.
