"Make Friends At the Alaska Zoo" Anchorage Local Custom Tip by mcpangie
Anchorage Local Customs: 26 reviews and 31 photos
You can go to the Alaska Zoo and make a friend. Children enjoy the petting zoo, and animals like this camel that enjoy visitors stopping by. It’s a really great place for children to learn a little about some animals native to Alaska, and also from foreign lands. The Alaska Zoo is a popular destination for families and school groups, but there is plenty for adults as well... supporting a good cause. Some of the animals they’ve had over the years were orphans who needed a place to be safe. When I was young one of the more popular animals for about twenty years was Binky, an orphaned polar bear, or nanook, who found a home at the Alaska Zoo and one the hearts of Alaskans and visitors alike. Binky and Nuka, another polar bear, lived there for years. Binky hit the national news one year when some foolish person tried to get in his cage. Binky and his friend Nuka passed away in 1995.
