Cool Critters: Birds
Alaska's WildlifeLarge, unfragmented areas, little development, and relatively pristine environmental conditions make Alaska well known for its abundant wildlife. Alaska's national parks provide visitors with up close experiences of wildlife unlike anywhere else in the nation. The large tracts of land and water within the parks serve as a sanctuary for wildlife, a study area for researchers, and a place to continue traditional hunting practices for native Alaskans. Learn more by visiting the pages on this site and by planning your next visit - virtual or in-person - to an Alaska national park.
