Photo Essay: The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center

During a five press trip to Anchorage, it snowed, it rained, but for one day, Alaska did its damnedest to show off, and I was lucky enough to spend a day hanging out at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. By now I’m sure you’ve guessed that I love animals, and having done volunteer work with wildlife rehab programs in the past, I had to come here! The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center “is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving Alaska’s wildlife through conservation, public education, and quality animal care. AWCC takes in injured and orphaned animals year-round and provides spacious enclosures and quality animal care. Animals that cannot be released into the wild are given a permanent home at the center” – Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center
