If you want to see a polar bear in Alaska without heading up to the Arctic, look no farther than the Alaska Zoo.
Are Polar Bears really big? Yes, they are! Visit the Alaska Zoo to watch and learn about our special white bears. Do wolves howl when they are happy? You bet! We have wolf brothers and sisters rescued as pups that love to show off.
