AWCC in Winter
As the weather gets colder, the personalities of our native Alaskan animals begins to change. Reindeer, Musk Ox, Lynx, and more of your favorite cold climate critters display their wild behaviors.
The Wildlife Center has taken a new twist to getting around campus! Kick-sleds are now available to be checked-out for free, in addition to the self-guided tours; by foot and vehicle! As the Center continues to enhance the visitor’s experience year-round, kick-sleds provide a unique alternative to winter tours. For more on the kick-sleds, check out Snow Much Fun at AWCC, here!
Winter also marks the time of year, when AWCC begins accepting applications for our summer employment opportunities! For a full list of positions available, click here!

The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving Alaska’s wildlife through conservation, public education, and quality animal care. AWCC takes in injured and orphaned animals year-round and provides spacious enclosures and quality animal care. Animals that cannot be released into the wild are given a permanent home at the center. Come be a part of these exciting programs and watch these animals display their natural, “wild”, behavior. Coyotes peer out from behind the brush while a bald eagle swoops in on the salmon remains left by a grizzly bear. Wood Bison plod through 65 acres of tidal flat terrain, as part of a program that will one day restore the species to the Alaskan wilderness.
AWCC has provided care for hundreds of displaced animals because visitors like you have made critical contributions in the form of admission fees, donations, memberships, and gift shop purchases. AWCC encourages you to visit the center with your walking shoes and camera in hand for an educational Alaskan experience to remember. We thank you in advance for your support and assistance in preserving Alaskan wildlife.
