I never imagined that there was a place like this anywhere...Steve and Mario taught us so many things about animals that we never knew. If I could live my life over again, I would come here always and try to learn all that I could from them. They are angels ,who would do anything to make sure their furry and... More

Read the best reviews and you have it all! Our 52 day trailer trip form Toronto to Alaska had its highlight here in Haines. Thanks Steve and Mario four allowing my wife and I to pet 3 moose [she kissed on e not me], feed a marten and porcupine, tug a caribou on leash and be entertained by two experts.... More

Just loved it. You get exactly what you might think it is...two Alaska naturalists who are crazy passionate about their animals, their environment, and their planet. Pet an American Marten on the tush, feed a reindeer by hand, watch a porcupine carefully reach out its paw to take a carrot from you, and of course, kiss Karen the Moose. All... More

What ever you do in Haines don't miss this. We arrived by Ship and just hired a car across the road from the port then drove 40 mins and on the way we drove through an Eagle Sanctuary and saw heaps of Bald Headed Eagles on the way. Steve Kroschel is so nice and so was the other guy that... More

We were on a group tour here in July 2014. We were told to "just go!" By our tour directors. I am so glad we did. Steve and Mario and, of course, the animals are my new favorite wild men. You will be glad you went.

Steve and Mario are absolutely hilarious and informative. They have such a passion for their animals. I really dont want to dpoil any of it by giving details. My wife kelly and I went on our honeymoon and it was the best experience of our entire cruise. We even got lucky enough to only have 4 other people there on... More

We were expecting a decent time and some general knowledge about the animals but what we got was so much more. The visit was way more entertaining that I had ever imagined! There was great story telling and a wealth of information about the animals and the area. Fantastic on all fronts. If I ever find myself in Haines, AK... More

We visited as part of a shore excursion from a Holland America cruise. Most of the other folks in our group on the ship had not even noticed this was an option because they were focused on outdoor adventure. However, upon comparing notes at the end of the day, we believe we made the better choice. Inspiring. Beautiful. Educational. Where... More

This was an excursion on our Holland America Cruise called, Wild at Heart: The Kroschel Center for Orphaned Animals. I read one of the reviews left here and what one person sees as 'preachy', I see as passion. Mario is passionate about his animals, it's not a job, it's his life. He's passionate about educating and informing the world about... More

For me this was one of the highlights of my trip to Alaska. Mario is so passionate about his animals and their welfare. They are his life and he's living the dream that many animal lovers have but don't have the guts to pursue. He and Steve are a breath of fresh air in a world where our animals are... More
