Our Mission
The Alaska Zoo is a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to promoting conservation of Arctic, sub-Arctic and like climate species through education, research and community enrichment.

Since 1969, we have cared for orphaned and injured wildlife as the only zoo in Alaska.

We are proud of how far we have come to care for wildlife in need and provide quality education and conservation programs.

August of 2019 marked 50 years since the Alaska Zoo (then the Alaska Children’s Zoo) opened its doors to its first animals and visitors.

While the zoo has increased in animal numbers and facility infrastructure over the decades, we are proud to remain true to our core mission of providing homes for animals who need them.

We work closely with wildlife officials and other zoos to provide animal placements in good permanent homes on our naturally wooded grounds.

We are a nonprofit organization receiving no city, state or federal funding for operations. We truly appreciate your support of our mission!
