Zoos, Aquariums, & Conservation Centers

Zoos, Aquariums, & Conservation Centers

Zoos and aquariums are relatively scarce in Alaska because the state is already one gigantic wildlife park. Those that do exist, however, are fascinating facilities dedicated to research, public education, and rehabilitation for orphaned or injured Alaska animals. Behind-the-scenes tours let you get close to animals and sometimes even participate in their care by feeding them or offering "enrichment activities" that encourage natural behaviors and play. Some wildlife facilities also partner with state and federal agencies to foster and then release species back into the wild.

Whether you are interested in raptors, bears, moose, seabirds, otters, wolves, and everything in between, Alaska’s wildlife rehabilitation and conservation centers are a must-do activity to learn about the state’s magnificent wildlife and support important research and rehabilitation efforts.
