Park Acclimation - Before each asset could be considered ready for public viewing at Jurassic World, it was subject to a period of extended enclosure acclimation. Herbivores were found to be especially skittish by nature, initially shying away from the park's large crowds before management stepped in—quite literally. Claire Dearing, along with Jurassic World veterinary staff, regularly participated in hand-feeding many of the herbivores before the park officially opened. The intent was to help these animals quickly adjust to the near-constant human presence they would experience as key park attractions. However, the assets' natural feeding behavior was effected to a fault when they began to incessantly trail attraction vehicles in the Gyrosphere Valley. Within a year of Jurassic World's public opening, the Gentle Giants Petting Zoo began operation as a more successfully means of acclimation. Carnivores proved to be quite a different story.

Sector 6 Encounter - During construction of Jurassic World on Isla Nublar, remnants of the old park were quickly enclosed in a restricted-access zone. Known as "Sector 6", this northern region of the island was soon discovered to be home to more than just rotting infrastructure. Security personnel often reported "owl-like" hooting and large shadows moving through the jungle canopy. These sighting were followed my several non-lethal attacks, where the culprits were revealed to be a small population of Dilophosaurus wetherilli that had survived from the time of the original park. Subsequent attacks during containment efforts turned more deadly: a security contractor was permanently blinded while another disappeared and is presumed dead.
