- Meet injured and orphaned Alaskan wildlife
- One of the most vital conservation refuges in Alaska
This excellent Anchorage gift experience takes you from the Alaskan capital out to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, which plays an extremely important role in caring for a variety of native animals that have been injured or orphaned, and, where possible, returning them back to the wild. The center’s spacious habitats allow the residents to exhibit their true natural behaviours and you might see brown bears swimming, wood bison roaming the meadows and pastures, and unbelievably cute baby animals getting their daily bottle of milk!
The journey out to the center, which is located at Portage Glacier, takes you past Turnagain Arm and the Chugach Mountains, so there is an excellent chance that your driver will pull the comfortable vehicle over to the side of the road so you can take photographs of nearby wildlife such as caribou or musk ox too. Led by an experienced professional guide, we highly recommend this Anchorage gift experience for anyone that loves animals, and wants to play a part in their conservation, or simply wants to learn about Alaskan wildlife.
