Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center – Portage, Alaska

May 1, 2016

This isn’t necessarily a hiking trail, but it is a one-mile loop worth walking! The animals at the Alaskan Wildlife Conservation Center have either been injured or orphaned, and are currently being treated and rehabilitated. It costs $12.50 per person and offers the potential to see several Alaskan animals. There are educational signs at each section that tell you about the animals. 

My favorite section was the brown bears. 

There was one eagle…

…and a couple of lynx (pictured above) and several wood bison (pictured below). 

There were many other animals not pictured including caribou, reindeer, black bears, porcupine, deer, foxes, elk, moose, and musk ox. 

For more information I found the following website helpful:

This blog is simply a log of my personal experiences. It is not a travel guide, a trail guide, any other sort of a guide, and it is not intended to give information for replication.
