Alaska Zoo Review

Roam the trails and visit with the polar bears, caribou, brown and black bears, seals, tigers, snow leopards, moose, wolves, lynx, and a large array of birds that call the Alaska Zoo home. Along with a major facility upgrade with a new entrance cabin and gift shop in 2009, the zoo has also upgraded its mission statement to concentrate on promoting the conservation of arctic and subarctic animal species. Throughout the summer, daily two-hour tours include two behind-the-scenes stops.

    Not a giant zoo, but pretty awesome

    Like one of the other people here mentioned, the Alaska Zoo isn't huge by "big city" standards. But you can tell the staff there put a ton of TLC into the animals and the grounds. I sure hope to visit it in the summer of '07 when all the new construction is done. That new center at the entry was is WAY COOL!
