Special Encounters

The Alaska Zoo offers behind-the-scenes programs with zookeepers to give you a special, private perspective of what it is like to work with zoo animals. We have four selections to choose from: Tiger Encounters, Wolf Encounters, Wolverine/Lynx Encounters and Keeper for a Day. All encounter programs must be purchased online 48 hours in advance of the start and tickets are non-refundable. These close experiences with the zoo’s animals are moments you will never forget!
