This Conservation Center Is One Of The Best Places To See Wildlife In All Of Alaska
Alaska is known for wild animals from fierce brown bears to soaring eagles. The land is still wild and uninhabited enough for animals to roam the land with a freedom rarely found in other parts of the world. Viewing wildlife is not as easy as it once was, especially when you don’t want to travel to the remote parts of the state. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in Portage has a huge variety of Alaskan wild animals that have been rescued from dire situations. These animals are housed in safety and are open for the public to view them most of the year. This amazing center and brings the wilderness to you.
