Only saw 4 other folks walking about the day I went. Beautiful sunny day, I have never seen a moose and that was my goal, but alas, he was wayyyy in the back of the field, lying down, so all I saw was a little brown dot with a silver bit on top. Sigh...Take binoculars if you seriously want to... More

This was a great place and we spent hours just walking around. We actually got to see a moose very very close up as he walked us round his paddock. So much to see and very peaceful. Highly recommended

We had the pleasure of visiting the Preserve staying relatively close by. We were unsure as to what exactly we would even see as unfortunately we hadn't researched it before we left for our holiday. Well, what a surprise. We were fortunate to have a private tour in the jeep with 2 tour guides. We visited the rehabilitation centre firstly... More

This preserve has animals native to the area and there are relatively few different types of animals here. But it is still well worth spending time here. The focus here is on the animals, which is really nice. They have large, natural paddocks and there is good information for the visitors on each animal. The property is large, so walking... More

This of all places should be the first place you go... This way you will not leave the Yukon without see the wildlife we incounter on a daily basis (right time right place ). Only a few times have I see big game in the city center.

What a pleasant experience to visit the wildlife preserve. This place is well kept and the animals seem happy at this natural habitat. The guide bus tour is great and worth it. Go for it.

Signed up for a Whitehorse excursion on a Yukon land tour. This was a pleasant surprise. This a quite a complex. We were on a guided bus tour. However were able to get out and view the various animals, take pictures and interact with the guide. Got the opportunity to see the animals up close. Learned quite a lot as... More

I recently took a visitor to the Preserve. First time I had been. The staff were very friendly and informative. We walked through most of the preserve on a beautiful day. Truly amazing to see so many wild animals up close! Even for me, a born and raised Yukoner! The little fawns, baby lynx, muscox, mountain goats, fall sheep, mule... More
