    I realize that many of the animals are orphaned or injured. They won’t do much, and animals aren’t here for our entertainment. The habitats for the animals are too small for many of them, and most are kept in horrible condition (paint peeling in the seal habitat, the polar bear one being absolutely filthy, able to see the entire rib cage on the coyotes, etc…). The workers that take care of the cleaning make it easy to see why this was so (the guy cleaning the yak enclosure just talked with a visitor for well over half an hour about their favorite drinks instead of actually shoveling as he should). The small reptile house is just sad. I realize it’s hard to keep reptiles in with the climate up here, but they have nothing but a food bowl, water bowl, and dirty carpet floor in a pen too small for them. It’s just not a good zoo in general. It needs at least basic upkeep and a place for the animals to tuck away when they want to. I like what they’re doing with the taking in of animals with needs, but it’s just not a good place.

    I have been to zoos all around the world and have and have even worked as a guide and naturalist at a AZA facility in California. This is a world class zoo right in my backyard. It’s well laid out and nestled in the trees of an Alaskan hillside. Of course there are limitations to an outdoor zoo in Alaska but they do well and the animals and displays are well cared for. I go a few times a year with out of town adults and local friends. It’s not huge, but it well done.

    Small but nicely done. I’m used to the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans.

    Not as large as some other zoos but many of the animals are rehabbed or injured and cannot be released into the wild which is prettt neat. Local animals mostly
