How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is committed to preserving Alaska’s wildlife and is involved in several programs that further this commitment. From taking in orphaned and injured animals when they cannot fend for themselves, to the Wood Bison Restoration Project, AWCC is involved in projects great and small. We strive to work in cooperation with Federal and State wildlife agencies, as well as with our community members at all levels to ensure that conservation remains top of mind in our mission. AWCC is committed to sustainability, eco-friendly operating practices, and recognition of indigenous and historic uses of the land. Pick.Click.Give donors make it happen!
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 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!
