Alaska is a great destination for viewing wildlife; some of the animals you can see here include whales, bears, eagles, cranes, and wolves. You can either view wildlife while on a tour or while exploring the state yourself, but you definitely donít want to miss the great wildlife viewing festivals throughout the year. Here are the top 3 wildlife viewing festivals:

  1. The Stikine River Birding Festival, Wrangell, April 28-May 1, 2011. This festival celebrates the migration of thousands of snow geese and sandhill cranes, and hundreds of eagles during the spring months. There will be workshops, birding facts and information, events for children and excursions to see the birds.
  2. Tanana Valley Sandhill Crane Festival, Fairbanks, August 26-28, 2011. Each August thousands of Sandhill Cranes fly southwards from Alaska and Siberia through the Tanana Valley; sometimes you can see up to a 1,000 cranes at the same time! This event includes talks, bird watching, nature walks, workshops and many other activities.
  3. Sitka Whale Fest, Sitka, November 10-13, 2011. This three day symposium brings local and international biologists and researchers to Sitka, to share their research and experiences. The event includes whale watching tours, art and music.
