Excursion à Turnagain Arm et à la découverte de la faune d'Alaska au départ d'Anchorage
Cette organisation privée à but non lucratif se consacre à la préservation de la faune d'Alaska à travers l'éducation du public. Le centre sauve des animaux orphelins et blessés et offre aux animaux des enclos spacieux et des soins de qualité. Les animaux qui ne peuvent pas être relâchés dans la nature obtiennent un abri permanent dans le centre.
Lors de votre visite guidée, observez de près des ours, des orignaux, des élans, des caribous et d'autres animaux d'Alaska. Vous passerez 3 heures et demie ici à observer les animaux et à découvrir les efforts de sauvetage et de réhabilitation du centre.
Vous aurez également l'occasion unique d'adopter un animal ! Moyennant un supplément, payable directement au centre, vous pouvez aider à prendre soin de l’animal de votre choix. Vous recevrez un certificat d'adoption, et le personnel professionnel du centre vous indiquera le régime spécial, l’environnement et les soins vétérinaires que votre animal requiert. Demandez tout simplement un formulaire d'adoption à votre guide ou demandez de plus amples détails au moment de votre réservation.

Our driver was very nice and provided a lot of commentary about Alaska while we were on the road. However, the stops we made were extremely brief. 10-15 minute stops at each point, 1 lookout point on Turnagain arm, and animal areas at the Wildlife Conservation Center. 1 stop was 45 minutes, which was at the gift shop area, of course. Our driver provided some info on the Center itself and a couple of the animals there, but I would've wished for a Conservation Biologist to provide informational talks and the back-stories of each animal that ended up at the center. None of the workers at the Center really spoke to us. Only 1 person did, to tell us how to spot the hiding spot of the Lynx, but that was it. There is a lot of missed opportunities with this tour, I didn't feel quite the connection to the Center as I thought I would've. That's too bad because wildlife and conservation is the #1 reason as to why I decided to visit Alaska in the 1st place. Hopefully, this tour in the future will provide a little more connection with the Center's mission or just make the tour last longer. I felt that we were just being rushed and shuttled between areas. At least during our visit, all the animals decided to wake up and put on a show for us. A brown bear was rolling around on his back, and another was scratching an itch on a pole. The wolves were napping at first and then all 3 woke up and started pacing and hoping on top of things. There was plenty to see so that was good. And I think I may have seen a beluga whale while driving on Turnagain Arm, but i'm not certain.
This excursion was one of the best things we did in Alaska. Our guide was prompt and professional, and very helpful with navigating Anchorage (as it was our first day there). The Wildlife Conservation Center was remarkable. We were literally 3 feet away from brown and black bears, moose, caribou, foxes, etc. Funny enough, we were thrilled to be there on a sunny day with a bright blue sky, but we were told the animals are often more active when it rains (which it does frequently during the summer in Alaska.) Anyway, everyone who visits Anchorage should make it a point to go out to the remarkable Turnagain Arm and Wildlife Conservation Center. It is well worth it! And, going with this tour did not disappoint! We loved it!
Our tour guide, John, made the trip worthwhile. His knowledge of Alaska and the Anchorage area was interesting and fascinating at the same time as well as his stories of life in Alaska. At the wildlife refuge, we got to see quite a few animals up close. As the first excursion of our cruise, it really made us excited for what was to come next! Highly recommend this tour.
This tour was great! I booked it at the very last minute and was able to do so quite easily. Rebecca, our guide, picked us up at the hotel and provided a commentary throughout on the scenery and wildlife. As there were only six of us , the tour was tailored to everyone's preferences. On our last day in Alaska we were finally able to get some great pictures of: bears, elk, reindeer, moose, wolves and some other animals that were elusive in the wild. The Wildlife Nature Center was a great way to see the animals up close and personal. I would highly recommend Salmonberry Tours.
A Little bit to expensive. Only a car drive to the wildlife Center and back. The Center is really great.
