Wildlife photography in Alaska

May 18, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

Alaska, The Last Frontier, has always been a much desired travel destination, be it simply for the sake of travel, the potential for amazing wildlife photography, landscape photography, etc. For me, it was all of the above, though I wouldn't consider myself a landscape photographer. But, if you're somewhere with the views that a place that Alaska can provide, why not go for it?

Fairbanks itself has plenty to offer. Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge was a constant stop for me in my two weeks there. At Creamer's Field, I saw a juvenile eagle trying, and failing, to catch birds for dinner. Also, plenty of Trumpeter Swans, Cackling Geese, Sandhill Cranes, Ducks, and even a Horned Grebe.

If you've ever wanted to see a musk ox, the Large Animal Research Station has a few. Depending on the time of year, the Wedgewood Wildlife Sanctuary can be a good place to see wildlife, though on this trip, only moose poop was spotted. However, be patient, and you just might see a moose crossing the street. or even simply relaxing just outside your AirBnb.
