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

This wonderful preserve is a great way to familiarize yourself with the animals of the Yukon. The bus tour is worth the cost for the instructions provided by the guide and the ability to ask questions. Extremely informative, educational, and interesting site to visit.

This isn't a zoo full of sad little animals in cages, animals here have wonderful wide open space, natural features as well as habitat improvements. The sheep and goats have real natural rock outcrops that appear to be quite high for them to roam on. They seem to have a world class veterinary facility as well. The animals are all... More

We were advised to arrive early by our car before the bus tours arrived. We assumed this was a walking tour for everyone, so were astonished and somewhat annoyed to find that whilst we walked around (which suited us fine as we could stop for photos when we wanted), large coaches were constantly going along the paths and we kept...

No need to take a bus, get some exercise and walk the preserve. You can spend more time and see more. It is a little pricey compared to the one outside of Anchorage but it goes to a good cause.

I had a really lovely 3 hours here. I would recommend taking a pack up and walking round the preserve. It's well laid out, easy to walk round just under 3 miles, of beautiful scenery and animals in a fantastic environment.. Yes you don't get to see all the species unless you are very lucky, as they have big natural... More

We walked the preserve with our 8 & 4 yr olds. The kids like seeing the animals but was tiring for the them. We saw half of the animals up close through the fence and the others in the distance. There was a good variety of animals but it's hard to take good pictures through the fence. It's worth a... More
