Yukon Wildlife Preserve

Located only 25 minutes from downtown Whitehorse and open year round, we provide visitors the opportunity to view and learn about 10 species of northern mammals on our 700 acre preserve.

You can walk, ski, snowshoe or bike our 5 km viewing loop at your leisure or join us for a bus tour guided by one of our friendly and knowledgeable interpreters. Both experiences provide excellent opportunities to view Yukon mammals in natural habitats. Reservations are recommended for guided tours.

Our facility includes the Wildlife Research and Rehabilitation Center where injured wild animals are cared for by specialists who work to release healthy, capable animals back into the wild. We are a center of northern education, conservation and research excellence and are a proud member of Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums. Our mission is to promote knowledge and foster appreciation of arctic and boreal ecology.
