    Wonderful place, beautiful animals that seem to be very well taken care of by the staff. Thank you for your hard work so that my family was able to enjoy it. They have Moose, Elk, Black-Tailed Deer, Musk Ox, Bald Eagle, Porcupine, Lynx, Fox, Bison, Reindeer, Black and Brown Bears, and I am sure I missed someone. Definitely worth the trip, time and money, I will return happily again to visit this location.

    I decided to stop on my way back to Anchorage from Seaward.

    One of the things I liked the most was their natural habitat and the ability to take pictures so close, it was like I was right next to them without a fence.

    As a travel agent:

    The staff is dedicated to their animals and will give a quick lesson on the animals there.
    They even have a nursery where the animals were born on premises. Visit the bison, ox, moose calves and deer. Each species are nursed to care and treated well. It;s all outside so if you visit bring a jacket, gloves and a hat. I was there...Read More

    We were looking for something to cool to do in the Anchorage area and we found the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center! The entrance fee was cheap, the animals all seemed well taken care of, and the staff members were helpful. We didn't try the food as we had brought our own little cooler, so I can't rate that, but overall it was a great trip. It was nice to be able to park wherever and walk around their 2 mile loop. I am looking forward to the completion of a new bear area which is in the works because the bears we saw were pretty cool. Overall...Read More

Overall I'd have to say this was a nice place to go if you want to get out of the city.
