Beautiful gift shop - and was very impressed that all monies spent there went back to AWCC 100%.

I thought the Behind-the-Scenes Tour was well planned out. I loved that me & my boyfriend were the only ones in our group, so our intern let us take a little longer at the enclosures to be sure we got the time we wanted. I loved how knowledgable and intriguing our intern was, he really provided us with a lot of information. And of course, seeing & learning more about the Wood Bison was very amazing. Feeding & playing with the baby moose, and being so close to brown bears were definitely my two favorite things. I really love the AWCC's mission & all it's doing to fulfill it.

It was the best experience I have ever had with animals. Their park is so much better on many different levels than the Alaska Zoo located in Anchorage; actually has a different concept. I absolutely LOVED it!! Their programs of survivability for the animals is the best in the Nation and in the world, I believe. Ex: Wood Bison

From Our Editors

The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (AWCC) shelters orphaned, injured, and ill animals that could not otherwise survive in the wild. Bears, elk, and coyotes roam in a natural-habitat enclosure where they are regularly fed, rehabilitated, and given medical attention under the direction of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. The AWCC seeks to educate the public about protecting Alaska’s native species with educational programs and tours. Patrons can also see the animals living in near-wild conditions, with bald eagles swooping to the ground in search of prey and wood bison plodding through 65 acres of tidal terrain. The latter comprise the only herd of wood bison in the U.S.: the species had been extinct in Alaska for more than a century until the AWCC acquired its herd from the Yukon as an effort to reintroduce the animal to the state.
