The Inside Passage in Southeast Alaska offers outstanding opportunities to view bald eagles, mountain goats, black and brown bear, porcupines, Sitka blacktail deer, and hoary marmots. South central Alaska is a good region for spotting Dall sheep, moose, and migratory birds. The Interior, where great herds of caribou roam the tundra. Visitors may be treated to sightings of wolves, red fox, musk ox, owls, countless migratory birds, and brown bear. Alaska’s wildlife is as varied as the land itself. Habitats range from Southeast Alaska’s temperate rain forest and alpine mountains to the vast pond-covered deserts of the interior and northern slope. Between and around these desert planes are icy regions that are inhabited only by algae and worms. In between these icy mountainous regions taiga, dotted with trees, and vast tidal deltas, are the preferred habitat for moose, caribou, brown bear and wolverines. The coastal waters surrounding Alaska are immense habitats themselves, home to virtually unlimited wealth of aquatic life.
Kodiak Island is well known for its fishing and bears. The Kodiak Brown Bear is one of the largest carnivores on earth. Over 3,000 bears make their home throughout the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge.
