Alaska Zoo - Review

With nearly 200,000 visitors annually, this is one of the state’s most popular attractions. 25 acres contain about 100 birds and mammals covering about 50 species. It’s not much, but they’ve done it very well indeed. And that’s just weird considering where they started from – with grocer Jack Snyder having to choose between winning USD 3000 or a baby elephant. He chose the elephant.

Animals on display include not only native Alaskan greats such as otters, caribou, owls, hawks, bears and wolves, but also exotic fare such as Amur tigers, Bactrian Camels, and yaks. The zoo’s done very well for itself in terms of education, research, wildlife conservation, and injured animal rehabilitation; and it collaborates with the University of Alaska, anchorage in animal research. They organise various events and educational camps too, so check out their website if you want to involve yourself in that.

For a hefty fee, you could wrangle a special encounter. Parties, greenhouse and other event rentals are advertised.

Alaska Zoo, Anchorage Reviews

  • First time in Alaska and we wanted to make sure we made a stop at the zoo. So much fun seeing animals at the zoo we don't usually get to see down in Texas. I got an awesome, frame-worthy pic of the wolves. We were also lucky to see the Siberian Tiger playing with its ball, it was almost like he/she wanted to show us!! Best video ever!!! Great experience, I would recommend to anyone while in Anchorage!

  • Really amazing zoo for its size with all sorts of things for kids to runs and do. Lots of hills so be ready for some exercise. Fun place to get out and escape the hustle and bustle of town. Gift shop and snack bar inside, as well as ample parking.

  • Lots of fun for children, some creatures may be off exhibit but still plenty to see. We went around noon and found many animals were napping so there was not much excitement factor but we all enjoyed ourselves. It took about 1.5 to 2 hours to walk through the park. Found a coffee shop near the back which I would definitely have stopped for if the kids weren't so eager to move on.

  • Such a nice place to visit with the family! Animals are all easy to view and the grounds are kept very clean. The pathways are gravel so any strollers or wheelchairs should be aware.

  • Friendly place that is educational and a great rehabilitation center for injured animals. Reasonable pricing. Map was a bit confusing though. Enclosures offer various viewing angles. They offer personal tours and interactions with certain animals including assisting with feeding.. There are snow leopards, black bears, brown bears, a variety of owls and predatory birds as we'll as camels, alpacas and a petting zoo.
