The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is dedicated to the rehabilitation of orphaned and injured animals and providing wildlife awareness education to the public. This provides visitors with the opportunity to view Alaskan wildlife up close. Amateur photographers have the opportunity to take award-winning photographs while animals display their natural, "wild" behavior. Coyotes peer out from behind the brush while a bald eagle swoops in on the salmon remains left by a grizzly bear. Wood Bison plod through 65 acres of tidal flat terrain, as part of a program that will one day restore the species to the Alaskan wilderness.
Drive through in the comfort of your own vehicle or walk to each exhibit for up-close photographic opportunities and to learn about the animals. Open daily 9 am - 7 pm. Visit their website.
