The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is a sanctuary dedicated to preserving Alaska wildlife's through conservation, research, education, and quality animal care. Open year-round and only 45 minutes south of Anchorage, we offer school field trips, live animal presentations, community outreach programs, monthly volunteer days, and special events. Our annual Bison Run Wild 5K is the most unique race in Alaska, taking runners through the sanctuary for close-up views of wildlife. We are located within the beautiful Kenai Mountains-Turnagain Arm National Heritage Area.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Thanks to donors like you, wood bison once thought extinct, roam free again in Alaska. The historic conservation effort of the Wood Bison Reintroduction Project was made possible through your support. It is amazing what we can do when we work together!
We provide a home to 20 species of wildlife. 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. Thank you!
