This is a list of wildlife scoring cards in Cascadia:

Image Name Description
Bear Cards (Cascadia)
Bear

Bears are scored for forming groups of varying sizes. These bear groups can take any shape or orientation, but they cannot be placed adjacent to each other. Each group must precisely match the number of bears indicated on the scoring card to earn points. There are card clarifications:
- (A) Earn points based on the total number of pairs of bears.
- (B) Score 10 points for each group of exactly three bears.
- (C) Score for groups of bears ranging in size from 1 to 3, with a bonus of 3 points for having one of each of the three group sizes.
- (D) Score for groups of bears with sizes ranging from 2 to 4.

Salmon Cards (Cascadia)
Salmon

Salmon are scored for creating runs, defined as groups of adjacent salmon where each salmon is connected to at most two other salmon. Runs may not have any other salmon adjacent to them. There are card clarifications:
- (A) Score for each run based on size, up to a maximum size of 7.
- (B) Score for each run based on size, up to a maximum size of 5.
- (C) Score for each run based on size, with sizes between 3 and 5.
- (D) Score for each run of salmon, earning one point for each salmon in the run, plus one point for each adjacent animal token, regardless of the type of animal.

Elk Cards (Cascadia)
Elk

Elk are scored for forming groups that match the specific shape or formation depicted on the card. Elk groups can be placed adjacent to each other, but each elk may only score once for a single group or formation. When scoring connected elk groups, always choose the interpretation that yields the highest point total. There are card clarifications:
- (A) Score for groups arranged in straight lines, connecting flat sides of hexagons in any orientation.
- (B) Score for groups matching the exact shapes shown, in any orientation.
- (C) Score for each contiguous group of elk, with points increasing based on size and shape, which can be of any configuration.
- (D) Elk groups must be arranged in a circular formation as illustrated.

Hawk Cards (Cascadia)
Hawk

Hawks score by spreading out across the landscape and can earn points for each hawk, pairs of hawks, or lines of sight between hawks. Lines of sight are straight lines connecting flat sides of hexagons, and they are interrupted only by the presence of another hawk. There are card clarifications:
- (A) Score an increasing number of points for each hawk not adjacent to any other hawk.
- (B) Score an increasing number of points for each hawk not adjacent to any other hawk and having a direct line of sight to another hawk.
- (C) Score 3 points for each line of sight between two hawks, with the possibility of multiple lines involving the same hawk.
- (D) Score for each pair of hawks, with points increasing based on the number of unique animal types between them, excluding other hawks. Each hawk can only be part of one pair.

Fox Cards (Cascadia)
Fox

Foxes score based on their adjacency to other animals, either individually or in pairs. Each fox or fox pair is scored independently, with points increasing depending on certain conditions in adjacent habitat spaces. There are card clarifications:
- (A) Score for each fox, with points increasing based on the number of unique animal types, including other foxes, directly adjacent to it.
- (B) Score for each fox, with points increasing based on the number of unique animal pairs, not including other fox pairs, directly adjacent to it. Pairs of other animals do not need to be adjacent to each other.
- (C) Score for each fox, with points increasing based on the number of similar animals, excluding other foxes, directly adjacent to it. Only the most abundant adjacent animal type is scored.
- (D) Score for each fox pair, with points increasing based on the number of unique animal pairs, not including other fox pairs, directly adjacent to it. Pairs of other animals do not need to be adjacent to each other.
