Palworld Wildlife Sanctuary: Locations, Pals, and more

There are multiple Palworld Wildlife Sanctuary islands for you to discover, but be ready for a fight against the PIDF and some strong Pals.

Palworld is full of areas to explore. Some of them, like each Palworld Wildlife Sanctuary, are off the beaten path. They are isolated islands you can travel to, but be warned, as it is considered criminal activity to step foot there.

You'll find a variety of rare and powerful Pals if you make the journey. Just watch for any police patrols and make sure you are properly leveled if you plan to go to any of the three. As exciting as it sounds, it is treacherous.

Palworld No. 1 Wildlife Sanctuary

Each Palworld Widlife Sanctuary is numbered. Here's everything you need to know about the first one:


  • South

The first Wildlife Sanctuary is fairly close to the start. The Plateau of Beginnings is to the northeast of it. If you find the Small Settlement fast travel location, go directly south. You'll need a saddle on something that flies or swims, though, as each Sanctuary is a far off island.


  • 20-25

You'll want to be between levels 20 and 25 here. This will ensure you can take on the NPC and Pal presence here. Anything higher and you'll be more than just fine. You might even one-shot some of the Pals here if you aren't careful.

Pals found in the Wildlife Sanctuary

  • PIDF Infantry
  • Penking
  • Grizzbolt
  • Elphidran
  • Eikthyrdeer Terra
  • Azurobe

Yes, the PIDF Infantry units aren't technically Pals, but you do you know you can catch humans in Palworld, right? It's rare that it will be successful, though not impossible.

Moving on from that, you've got Grizzbolt who you may have seen in the first boss tower, and Eikthyrdeer Terra. It is a Ground-type variant of the large purple deer. Those are the standouts here.

Palworld No. 2 Wildlife Sanctuary

The second Wildlife Sanctuary in Palworld is much more dangerous than the first. Here's what you should prepare for:


  • West

The second Wildlife Sanctuary in Palworld is to the far west of the map. The best way to get there, again by flying or swimming, is to fast travel to the Forgotten Island Great Eagle Statue. You'll see it off the coast just slightly southwest of there and it's pretty easy to get to.


  • 40-50

Unlike the first Wildlife Sanctuary, this second one is fully of mighty pals. You won't survive long if you aren't at least level 40. Anything lower than that and you'll be hitting the Respawn button faster than you could imagine.

Pals found in the Wildlife Sanctuary

  • PIDF Elite
  • Incineram Noct
  • Menasting
  • Warsect
  • Wumpo Botan
  • Kingpaca
  • Jormuntide Ignis

This time around, you'll find PIDF Elite guards. They're tough, so good luck fighting or trying to catch these humans. When it comes to actual Pals, there are some great ones to add to your collection.

A Dark-type variant of Incineram and a Fire-type variant of Jormuntide are among the bunch. After that, you should have your eye on Menasting. This is the only place it is found.

Palworld No. 3 Wildlife Sanctuary

The third and final Palworld Wildlife Sanctuary is perhaps the most the challenging of the trio. We'll get you prepared:


  • North

The north of the Palworld map is extremely dangerous. Off the coast of the desert, just past the PIDF Tower, you'll find the No. 3 Wildlife Sanctuary. It's the furthest from the mainland and you might get caught by some of the desert Pals on the way to the water.


  • 40-50

If you thought the No. 2 Wildlife Sanctuary was rough, get a load of No. 3. You absolutely need to be between levels 40 and 50 with powerful partners in your party. Reach the highest level you can before your curiosity sends you this way.

Pals found in the Wildlife Sanctuary

  • PIDF Elite
  • Lyleen
  • Bushi
  • Fenglope
  • Incineram Noct
  • Orserk
  • Faleris
  • Shadowbeak

One more time, you'll come across PIDF Elite forces and Incineram Noct. There are quite a few Bushi and Fenglope running around, with Lyleen being a bit uncommon, but not super rare.

The rarest Pals here are three of the tower bosses you faced. Wild Orserk, Faleris, and Shadowbeak can all be found at the No. 3 Wildlife Sanctuary. Needless to say, they'll wipe the floor with you if you aren't strong enough. Good luck.
