The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (AWCC) is a sanctuary dedicated to preserving Alaska’s wildlife through conservation, education, research and quality animal care. AWCC is located on mile 79 of the scenic Seward Highway, just 40-minutes south of Anchorage in Portage Valley, and is surrounded by the breathtaking Chugach Mountain Range and Turnagain Arm Inlet.
The sanctuary takes in injured and orphaned animals year-round and maintains over 200 acres of spacious habitats for animals to feel at home and display their natural “wild” behavior. It is common for visitors to see brown bears swimming, moose strutting, wood bison roaming, muskox playing, wolves posing, porcupines climbing, and more!
Come enjoy over 200 acres of animal enclosures by touring our scenic 1.5-mile loop, accessible by foot, by bicycle, or by car, while learning about our resident wildlife. AWCC’s 1.5 mile loop is perfect for winter adventure as well! Unique ways to explore the Center during the winter months include gliding on your cross country skis, riding your fat bicycle, or utilizing AWCC’s complimentary kick-sled rentals.
We look forward to seeing you at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and hope you enjoy your visit!
