The Alaska Zoo


The Alaska Zoo has provided a home for orphaned, injured and captive-born animals for more than four decades.  We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to promoting the conservation of Arctic, sub-Arctic  and like climate species through education, research and community enrichment. We are proud to offer quality education programs and events for Alaskans and visitors.
