The Kenai Peninsula and Southcentral Alaska Sights

Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center

  • Seward Hwy.
  • Prince of Wales Island
  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Fodor's Review

The center is a 144-acre, 2-mile drive-through loop with places where you can see up close the many animals the park has adopted and rescued. For more than a decade the center has been raising wood bison, which had been extinct in Alaska since the 1800s and were endangered in Canada. The center hopes to reintroduce them to the wild sometime in 2015. An elevated walkway at the center allows visitors the thrilling experience of seeing bears at eye level.
