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

We spent three wonderful hours meandering and viewing the animals of the Yukon. Unique natural setting in a protective area. Outhouses set up for convenience, graded path ways for buggys & wheelchairs informative & freindly staff.

Went here on my weekend trip to Whitehorse with my two sons (8 and 5). Walking the whole way took us about 2 1/2 hours with stops for all the animals as well as for interesting rocks, sticks, etc. The only animal we didn't see was the moose, but we still enjoyed it. I would recommend this place to everyone... More

Loved it - wouldn't call it a zoo, because the animals are in their natural habitats, so they seemed happier and more natural. We hiked it, really easy walk - we had 3 adults and a toddler in a stroller.

I had a brilliant guided tour here, took lots of pictures of moose, mountain goat, elk, mull deer and arctic fox, the ground squirrels was super friendly, they came right up to you and pose for pictures! The ladies was even kind enough to drop me off at the hot spring down the road.

We were overjoyed to be able to finally see white mountain goats and muskox! So majestic and up close without inhibiting them or crowding them. A fantastic layout that can be hiked if you have time but offers a wonderful bus tour on a regular schedule. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and make sure that they show you the best... More

A great place to see all the animals of the Canadian North within one place and the sourrouding scenery makes for great wildlife pictures! Quite a bit of walking and all outside so dress appropriately!

We live in an area where wildlife is not a novelity to see, but this preserve was a fun place. We walked the entire route and were able to go at our own pace, wait for the animals so I could get that just right picture. The animals were of a wide variety and it was interesting to see the... More

We headed to the Preserve at the end of the day. I was with my 9 and 13 year olds. We had been to Muktuks earlier. By the time we arrived, it was 4:30 pm and we walked only part-way around the preserve. The setting is lovely, but the children were tired and so we weren't able to enjoy the... More

I make an attempt to visit animal sanctuaries around the world. Animals were here before humans and we should respect that fact. We took the self guided walking tour and saw all the magnificent indigenous animals as they watched us, as well. They all appear to be content and well fed. Kudos to the volunteers and staff for their dedication... More
