The Alaska Zoo is a nonprofit established in 1969. Our mission is to promote conservation of Arctic, sub-Arctic and like climate species through education, research and community enrichment.

Cranbeary the polar bear has begun making appearances in the main polar bear habitat. She and our male Lyutyik are alternating time as they enter the final stages of getting to know each other. We hope to have them together soon! In the meantime, you can check our live web cam to see their activity. They are not on a set schedule yet, it is currently up to staff discretion as they observe the bears.
