Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center

Set on the shores of Turnagain Arm, surrounded by mountains and glaciers, the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center offers an ideal setting for learning about Alaskan wildlife. Located just 47 miles south of Anchorage on the Seward Highway, the exceptionally beautiful drive is second only to the experience you will have at the Center.

Everyone who visits the 200-acre Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center are amazed to experience watching these diverse and mighty creatures up close and personal. The Center’s mission is to provide refuge for orphaned, injured, and ill animals. Here you may see 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.


  • Learn about Alaskan wildlife while driving or walking through the 200-acre refuge
  • View black and brown bears up close and personal from the Center’s newly completed elevated viewing decks
  • Take a narrated tour, or keep watch for feeding times throughout the day for a unique show
