This was a great place to visit. We saw every animal there since it was unseasonable warm when we visited. A Lynx, red fox, snow fox, elk, deer, moose, sheep, so many you cannot name them all. Tour guide very knowledgeable

We visit the wildlife preserve a few times of year. The animals all have nice big pens with lots of room to roam around, and close to natural habitats. The staff are always really great, friendly and helpful. My young children always enjoy seeing the animals.

A great experience. We walked the 5.5k around the preserve. Took almost two hours. Mountain goats and sheep, moose, caribou, fox, lynx and birds abound. The eagles and owls there are injured birds that wouldn't survive in the wild. All the animals are in large open fields with lots of roaming room and well taken care of. The only guy... More

We had a wonderful afternoon guided tour viewing the birds and animals at the preserve. They have plenty of room/land to move around, and look extremely well cared for, important issues for us when viewing animals in captivity. The red and arctic foxes are absolutely adorable!

We do a fair amount of nature touring. Coming from Caslifornia, we got to see several species we hadn't seen before; Lynx, Musk Ox, Arctic Fox, and Wood Bison. Pete, the bus driver and nature guide was very knowledgeable and patient with all our questions. This facility is unique and well worth a visit

First of all, this ride to the Yukon Wildlife Preserve was worth seeing because of our guide, Tom, who provided us with much information about the animals, and some delightful stories (how Meg, a moose, starred in a Hollywood movie). I particularly enjoyed seeing the Artic Foxes, so cute, they looked like some shy little ladies, with an innocent look... More

The animals were awesome, coming from Europe - we don't get to see this type of wild life. Super cool, would recommend to friends.

We took the bus tour around the preserve and got to see animals in very large enclosures. Some, like the bald eagle, were rescues living their lives out peacefully and others just seemed content. It didn't feel like visiting a zoo since everyone was really spaced out. Our guide gave information and answered all questions. It was a very worthwhile... More

Went to the preserve and saw many animals only previously seen on TV. Loved the arctic fox, bison and caribou. Bus ride around was definitely preferable to walking.

This is really more like an open zoo with animals in huge pastures. The lady in the reception explained that a lot of the animals are rescues. Well worth the money and a really nice walk to take while seeing moose, mountain goats and bison. The snow foxes where our favorites.
