Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center @ Gridwood, Alaska

The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is a place that not to be missed when you visit Alaska. It have all the amazing tundra weather land-based animals. The conservation center is surrounded by beautiful mountains and it open the whole year even during winter. You have great chance to see from near at moose, muskox, elk, reindeer (caribou), baby moose, grizzly bear, black bear, brown bear, lynx, bison and red fox. This is a place where you can have once in a lifetime experience to see moose so close-by. I have some good pictures of the wildlife with background of amazing views of hanging glaciers. The conservation center is located 45 minutes from Anchorage and the during journey to the center, you will see some of the magnificent mountains view.

Rating:10/10(Great place to see all the tundra based animals with spectacular mountain background view. The animals are all quite unique especially for those who live in hot and humid countries).

Two resting elk.

In Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, visitor have great chance to view moose from near. Viewing moose from near in wild is dangerous as their action are unpredictable.

Muskox is another wildlife which is hard to see in the wild. This animal like to fight using their hard head.
