Alaska Zoo Animal Updates

In an effort to provide visitors and supporters with the "scoop" on animals at the Alaska Zoo, our animal husbandry staff will update this page weekly. Thank you for your interest!

  • 2/20/17 Jake and Oreo, the brown bears, where both awake and chilling out on the porch to the den building.
  • 2/14/17 Flying squirrels will be moving to a large outdoor enclosure today. With all of the very cold weather, we have been slowly acclimating them. We will take advantage of this warm weather and a heat pad to finish their transition. Look for them next to the Sitka deer.
