Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center
Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is a sanctuary dedicated to preserving Alaska’s wildlife through conservation, education research, and quality animal care.
Open year-round and only 45 minutes south of Anchorage, we offer K-12 STEM education through school field trips, live animal presentations, virtual field trips, and outreach programs. Visitors learn about the biology and conservation of Alaska wildlife while touring through our 200 acre sanctuary nestled between the Chugach Mountains and the water of Turnagain Arm. Most of the animals that call the Wildlife Center home do so because they were orphaned, injured, or abandoned in the wild.
Your support helps care for these animals and furthers our conservation and education efforts. Resident animals are “education ambassadors” for their species. AWCC provides K-12 STEM education for students in the areas of biology and conservation through both in-person and virtual field trips. Your support makes this possible!
