Experience the thrill of witnessing Alaska's wildlife in their natural habitat.

Up Close and Personal

Wildlife in Alaska is, well.. wild. Hardly any other state can keep up with the breathtaking diversity of the animal world. But while you might be reluctant to encounter wild grizzlies in the wild on a camping trip, you can get a sheltered look at bears and other native animals at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.

Located on over 200 acres of pristine Alaskan wilderness, this remarkable facility combines wildlife rehabilitation, conservation, and education. It serves as a safe haven for injured, orphaned, and endangered animals, that couldn’t make it in the wild.

Here, majestic creatures can roam freely in spacious enclosures designed to mimic their natural habitats. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center provides a unique opportunity to observe and learn about Alaskan wildlife up close, while also supporting their rehabilitation and eventual return to the wild.

Animals at the Conservation Center

If you want to see bears in the wild without putting yourself in danger, you’ve come to the right place. The mighty grizzly bear is easily one of the most awe-inspiring species that is home to the Conservation Center. Standing tall and powerful, these magnificent creatures are bound to captivate your attention and remind everyone of the wild beauty that Alaska is renowned for.

Another highlight is the only Wood Bison herd in the United States, which is at home in the Conservation Center. Like many other bison, these are prey to hunters and land development and were at times considered critically endangered.
