Visitors & Educators

Visitors to National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska can experience some of the best wildlife related activities that the Last Frontier has to offer. Hunting and fishing opportunities abound on refuges from Izembek on the Alaska Peninsula to Selawik in the northwestern part of the state. Wildlife viewing and photography possibilities on refuges are numerous and varied, from Bering Sea fur seals and seabirds at Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge to waterfowl migrations at Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge on the eastern border with Canada.

Visitors and Educators will find environmental education and natural and cultural history interpretation is provided at refuges in the form of visitor centers, displays, handouts, informative staffs, and websites. Come visit an Alaska National Wildlife Refuge for a once in a lifetime experience that is meant to be experienced throughout a lifetime.

Please visit the on-line bookstore at Alaska Geographics for maps, travel guides, and our suggested reading section.
