Kea nests costs 600 each and will harvest fruit to sell. The birds can also fly around to other island trees.

Jump off the island into the ocean 3 times

This is easy to do at the beginning of the game before you acquire balloon travel. Simply walk off the edge of an island into the water 3 times to unlock this achievement.

Don't worry thankfully you won't die! You will quickly respawn on the island as if that never happened.
Cleanup Duty
Clean up the archipelago

After you have unlocked the entire map with the lighthouse, clean up every single piece of scrap. When all pieces of scrap laying around have been picked up you will unlock this achievement. Luna will give you tasks to clean up islands as you unlock them.

Scrap sells for 5 each when sold to Luna who will reward you with even more for completing the tasks.
Anything Else?
Catch the same fish 3 times in a row

This takes a special kind of luck to catch 3 of the same fish in a row, Simply just keep fishing until you manage to hit a streak. The catch rates are random and are completely decided on luck. It's recommended that you fish at a fishing spot which only has 4 total fish to increase your chances.

If you are having trouble with fishing, the game settings has a speed modifier which you can adjust.
Be Like the Lotus
Plant 15 lotuses

Open the build menu and place down 15 lotuses in the water, They can only be placed in certain areas. If a placement is invalid, a red highlight box will appear indicating you need to find a more suitable spot.

Lotuses cost 40 and produce Lotus seeds every 25 seconds which sell for 10 each.
We're Gonna Need a Bigger Screen
Catch an oarfish

Once you unlock the last fishing spot you will be able to catch an Oarfish which is a huge fish that can be difficult to catch without fishing upgrades. If you manage to catch one of these, you will unlock this achievement. The oarfish is required to complete the Fauna field journal for Nigel.

The Oarfish sells for 75 each and is needed to complete Jellybean's last fishing tour task.
The Ones that Got Away
Fail to catch 10 fish

Hopefully you will be doing this on purpose and not on accident, Simply fail to catch a fish 10 times. Easiest way to do this is to set the fishing speed modifier in the game settings to maximum so the fish escape very quickly.

Can be done as early as the beginning of the game, right after you receive your fishing rod from Jellybean.
Hide and Seek
Find Poppy in a cave

After unlocking the balloons to travel between islands go to Gustav's island and float over to the cave where Poppy appears from, you will unlock the achievement once you land by the cave. Once the bridge is completed Poppy will be waiting for you by your boat asking you to sail to each of the Elm saplings in hopes of restoring them.

You can upgrade your boat with by talking to Gustav.
A Work of Art
Help Gustav rebuild a bridge

If you have Gustav's island island unlocked, Talking to Gustav will give you the task "A Bridge Too Few" which requires 50 to repair the bridge. Place down bird nests on islands that allow them to slowly produce enough wood then return and talk to Gustav.

Takahe nest is the best investment, it produces +3 over time but requires 999 to build.

"Anything Else?" is easiest to do on the second fishing spot, as the Goldfish reels in a lot faster than the other three - if it reels in slower, let the catch get away. That way you're guaranteed to catch 3 Goldfish in a row.
... and you likely finish "The Ones That Got Away" too.

Great guide, thank you! :tslike: Although I think it would be a good idea to move up Hide and Seek section so it shows up before A Work of Art, as if you repair the bridge before flying over the cave, unlocking its relative achievement will be impossible.
