Moose, Bears, Elk, Lynx & more at AWCC

Making our way to the Kenai Peninsula & down to Seward, we stopped along the way to visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center near Girdwood. Almost all the animals here were orphaned or injured, and are either nursed back to health to return to the wild, or live out their days here on 200 acres. A great opportunity to see big animals up close - without having to worry about trying to pull off the road quickly & grab a picture! We saw moose, black & brown bear, elk, lynx, caribou, wood bison, a wolf & a porcupine!
