My strategies for every map:
1) Start off by putting the Admission Price to High. If you are losing popularity, most likely due to a janitor strike, then bump it down to Medium for a bit, or even Low if you have to.
2) Keep everything organized so you can find it quickly. For example I always had my mini exhibits in rows on the right side of the zoo, and made enough for each type of species up to the mid 30's. The small sized exhibits were on the left, and the middle was a cluster of all the other types of buildings.
3) Research the research reduction stuff first, followed by the cheaper animal purchase, advertisement increase, and then the decoration upgrade cost reduction. Do not bother with medium and large exhibits, this is quick and dirty work.
4) Keep up a Medium (the $1,000 type) advertising starting at level 10 and upgrading to Viral at level 20.
5) Do not forget the Awards. You can easily get the 10 different decorations early on buy purchasing the $100 landscape trees.
6) Learn and then adopt the new animals as soon as you level up. This way you do not have to keep track of what you have (which you can find on the Back Button menu aka the admissions building menu under Zoo Collection or the Animals section (which will have an exclamation mark if you can learn it but do not have it).
7) The last animal you can learn is the one that is needed in another zoo. The exception to this is the Northern African Sanctuary as you have to continue to level 37 to get Barabery Lion.
8) Most IMPORTANTLY: learn decorations that provide 400 rating and above. You will need them to quickly hit the upper 30s. Use up other 400+ structures such as Pizza Shop, Lemur Keeper, and you can even doss down a Breeding Center or two (but those are pricey). If it does not provide 400 or more rating then do not bother with it (after doing the Concessions Award). Getting all the animals in a zoo (except the Britain one with 176) took me under an hour.
9) Save the British zoo with 176 animals for this challenge. It takes the longest, and you need to make 100 babies and release 100 animals. Might as well do this one to 40 so you can finish up the non-Challenge mode achievements in Sandbox mode.
