This solution is specifically for the Thailand campaign (aka Carnivorous Kalidahs) and is more of an elaboration upon the really good guide that XI AlphaMale IX put together. I came looking for a solution to this particular campaign after several different strategies, and several failures, but found nothing specific. I personally found this particular campaign "mission" to be the hardest of all of them, even though it is rated as Normal. I figured maybe others found this one especially challenging as well, so once I managed to get through it successfully, I documented each of my steps so that anyone who is stuck could follow them.

I added checkpoints to the guide so that you can make sure you are on pace to complete the campaign in time. They are only reference points in where I was at that time, and also to give some sense of elapsed time between certain steps. Some require a bit of patience.

Endangered babies to adopt (quick ref list)
Himalayan Bear
Grizzly Bear
Bengal Tiger
Siberian Tiger
Asiatic Lion

Adopting the right endangered baby animals is paramount to the success of this campaign.

STEP BY STEP
Thailand (Carnivorous Kalidahs) (45:00)
Incredible Child Actors - Adopt five child animals from different endangered species
Lions! - Take photos of three different species of Lion
And Tigers! - Take photos of three different species of Tiger
And Bears! - Take photos of three different species of Bear
Oh My! - Fame level 15 (start at 7)

1) As soon as you begin, go straight to Alpine Large. Research and buy a Himalayan Bear.
2) Once it arrives, take a picture of it and the Polar Bear which was already present.
3) Go to Grasslands Medium and buy a Level 6 Central Chimp. (Yes, I know this doesn't seem to make any sense and makes zero progress towards the 5 main goals. However, I found that in doing this, which is fairly inexpensive, the chimps become happy once their social need is met, and that seems to bring more visitors and therefore income into the zoo much earlier).
4) Head over to Savannah Medium and adopt a Level 2 Asiatic Lion and take a picture of it, as well as one of the Katanga Lions which was already present. (Note: I mention Level 2 for babies and Level 6 for adults because they are cheaper. If one is not there, I found it better to wait and save the money. If you decide to wait, research another animal, and make sure to check back often).
5) Build a Tropical Small. Equip it with Feeding, cleaning, and an enrichment. This will host the Tigers.
6) Adopt Level 2 Bengal Tiger and take it's picture.
7) Research Siberian Tiger.
8) Ping Maintenance, and repair all concessions and the facilities. DO NOT do upgrades yet. Only repair.
9) Add a restroom in a centralized location. I personnally placed it next to the Bear Topiary.

CHECKPOINT: 34 minutes left, Level 8 (low), $9000. 3/5 endangered species adopted. 2/3 Lion pictures taken. 1/3 Tiger pictures taken. 2/3 Bear pictures taken.

10) Trade your Polar Bear. (This is necessary because you can only have to species of animal in any exhibit at any time, and there is no time or money to build new exhibits).
11) Adopt Level 2 Grizzly Bear and take picture.

CHECKPOINT: 30 minutes left, Level 8 (low), $10000. 4/5 endangered species adopted. 2/3 Lion pictures taken. 1/3 Tiger pictures taken. 3/3 Bear pictures taken.

12) Adopt Level 2 Siberian Tiger and take picture.

CHECKPOINT: 27 minutes left, Level 8 (low), $Low. 5/5 endangered species adopted. 2/3 Lion pictures taken. 2/3 Tiger pictures taken. 3/3 Bear pictures taken.

NOTE: Since you now have all 5 endangered baby species challenge complete, you are free to trade them. DO NOT do this prior to completing the challenge or the count will go down. Once it has been completed, you are free to trade them and not effect the challenge.

13) Trade baby Siberian Tiger.
14) Research South China Tiger.
15) Trade baby Asiatic Tiger.
16) Research West African Lion.
17) Adopt EITHER Level 6 West African Lion ($10,200) OR Level 6 South China Tiger ($6,400), and take picture. For me, The lowest South China Tiger available was Level 8, which cost over 10k, so I moved forward on the Lion. Either/Or, just don't wait around too long.

CHECKPOINT: 22 minutes left, Level 8 (High), $Low. 5/5 endangered species adopted. 3/3 Lion pictures taken. 2/3 Tiger pictures taken. 3/3 Bear pictures taken. (You may be complete with Tigers rather than Lions, depending on your choice on #17.)

18) Adopt EITHER Level 6 West African Lion ($10,200) OR Level 6 South China Tiger ($6,400), and take picture. (Obviously, opposite of what you chose on #17).

CHECKPOINT: 18 minutes left, Level 8 (High), $Low. 5/5 endangered species adopted. 3/3 Lion pictures taken. 3/3 Tiger pictures taken. 3/3 Bear pictures taken.

I recommend saving here just in case things don't go as planned for you, especially if you are anywhere near having 18 minutes left like I did. The hardest part is done, so save so that you ensure you don't have to go through that again.

All challenges now complete except for reaching Level 15 ("Oh My"). The rest of this guide lays out what I did to get to Level 15, but the basic summary is: Start building and upgrading like crazy

19) Research Macaw Keeper and build.
20) Research Lemur Keeper and build.
21) Research Ice Cream Stand and build.
22) Build Burger Barn.
23) Build another Ice Cream stand.
24) Build Lion Mascot.
25) Build restroom.
26) Research Milkshake Stand and build.
27) Upgrade all restrooms, concessions, and decorations to Level 2.
28) Build another Macaw Keeper.
29) Build another Lemur Keeper.
30) Research Pizzeria and build.
31) Research Coffee Shop and build.
32) Build another Burger Barn.

LEVEL 15!!!!!, and with 6 minutes to spare.

Hope this helps someone!! Good luck!!
