This is a really unique and awesome experience. Great way to see some native Alaskan wildlife creatures up close and learn more about them then just visiting a Zoo-like attraction. Steve and Mario are very passionate about what they have here and it truly shows in your visit. Great for anyone who is an animal lover. Very enjoyable for both... More

There are experiences that we have in life that give us a deeper appreciation for who we are and the world that we live in. This is one of those experiences. In a spectacular setting, an Alaskan mountain chain dominating the background, Mario and Steve will invite you into their world. It is a beautiful world. A world where they... More

As an animal and nature lover, the opportunity to see these amazing animals who are obviously loved by Steve and Mario was one of the highlights of my Alaska trip. I went because it was described as a rescue center to help the animals. The work they do and life they live is amazing and I learned many interesting things.... More

Everyone is has the right to their own opinion. We just returned from Alaska. It was a very expensive trip. Between the cruise, the floatplane trip to view grizzlies in the wild and the helicopter landing on glacier... I spent a small fortune. But whenever anyone asks my 9 year old son what was your favourite part of the trip... More

We stopped in Skagway while on a Princess Cruise. After much research we decided on the Kroschel Alaska Animal Kingdom. We wanted to see wildlife and we got way more than we bargained for! The guys, Steve and Mario, were so much fun and incredibly knowledgeable. We took our 8 year old niece and she was in absolute heaven. Unlike... More

We found The Kroschel Flims Wildlife Center to be an exceptional experience for animal lovers to have the opportunity to see local wildlife up close and in a safe and educational environment that is appropriate for people from all walks of life. Steve and Mario provided fun and fact-filled stories about the animals they have rescued - most are orphans... More

Got close to Kitty (she was behind a fence). I got close to a wolf, porcupine, caribou, weasel and other exotic animals. A wonderful experience. Steve, Mario and Rocky were very nice to me. I will never forget them. Mrs. Ianthe Johnson, Concho, Ariz.

This place has great animals to view interesting animals up close. Having kids pet a moose was great. However medical theories shouldn't confuse the great conservationist message.

This was the best part of our Alaska cruise. Our time at the Kroschel films wildlife Center was tremendous. All the animals we meet were beautiful and obviously well cared for. Steve and Mario were our guides and we were captivated the entire time - we didn't want to leave. Their passion for wildlife, ecology, and learning were infectious. So... More

Wonderful couple of hours with Mr. Kroschel, Mario and the animals. Learned a lot about these fascinating creatures and a new appreciation for our fragile ecosystem and the importance of saving our environment and looking after our fellow-creatures. Time and money well spent
