Wildlife Safety

Denali National Park & Preserve


Seeing a wild animal in the backcountry can be an incredible experience. But knowing how to behave in an encounter scenario might make all the difference. Whether it's a moose, a bear or some smaller animal, be prepared to react accordingly. Key concepts: • Make noise in areas of low visibility • Stay 300 yards away from any bear • Stay at least 25 yards from a moose • If a wild animal changes its behavior because of you, you’re too close.
