What people say

"The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center offers a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with Alaska's native wildlife while supporting conservation efforts. Home to a variety of rescued and orphaned animals, including bears, moose, and muskoxen, the center provides a safe haven for these majestic creatures. Visitors can observe these animals in their natural habitats and gain a deeper understanding of the importance of wildlife conservation in Alaska. Check out their website in advance to book limited-capacity encounters with the animals (I personally did the moose encounter!)."
"The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is a must-visit for animal lovers. Home to an array of fascinating creatures including bears, lynx, caribou, bison, porcupines, wolves, elk, coyotes, and the beloved muskox, this center provides a unique opportunity to see these animals up close. With a $25 entry fee, it’s well worth the money. Open year-round, though hours and days of operation vary, so be sure to check ahead. This sanctuary not only offers an educational experience but also supports wildlife conservation efforts."
"I typically abhor zoos, but these animals came to this refuge hurt or as babies so they can't be returned to the wild. As sad as it is to see animals caged, this truly is their best chance at life now. These native Alaskan animals are very cared for here. This is definitely worth a visit if you travel South out of Anchorage on the Turnagain Arm Scenic Highway. "
