Wildlife in Alaska

Alaska is known as the ‘Wild Frontier’ due to its rugged landscape. It’s a wild paradise, offering breath-taking views for its visitors and diverse habitats for its wildlife. Bears fish for salmon in the rivers while deer wander the forests, and golden eagles swoop above the plains, and you might get to see an Arctic Fox too, it’s a nature lover’s dream.
