Hidden Gem: Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center


If you’re planning on taking a small road trip along the Seward Highway from Anchorage, Alaska, make sure to make the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center a highlight of your trip.

Shaun and I are normally zoo people (don’t hate) but as of lately we’ve been a little worried about the state of the animals and have been picky about where we give our funds. After talking to a tourism lady she told us about this gem on the road. Keep in mind that the sign comes up on you pretty fast so make sure to check out where it is on the map before heading out.

Some of these animals not only were saved from poachers and huntsman but if they are able, they do catch and release rehabilitation. When not released, they have hundreds of acres to roam and seem quite content.

Check out some of the images we were able to capture while roaming around the park.









Disclosure: We were able to be in Anchorage due to our partnership with the Hilton Garden Inn, however all opinions are our own.

  1. These pictures are absolutely incredible. I see what you’re saying about giving your funds to zoos, some are mismanaged and not treating animals well. I think there are improvements going on but you definitely found a great alternative. That conservation center helped you get some gorgeous photos. I love the Bald Eagle Photo, wow!

    1. Thank you! I couldn’t help but stand in awe of the bald eagle. I had never seen one before. Even though he was a bit scrappy from the poacher, he was still so magnificent.
