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. The zoo provides a wide array of programs included with admission, such as zookeeper talks and toddler storytimes, that concentrate on promoting the conservation of arctic and subarctic animal species. Throughout the summer for an additional fee you can join daily, two-hour tours that
include two behind-the-scenes stops.

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!
