In 1966, the Crown Zellerbach paper company held a contest. The grand prize was "win $3,000 or a baby elephant." The contest winner surprised everyone when he chose the elephant! So an Asian elephant was brought to Alaska. Eventually the grocer offered the elephant to Mrs. Seawell, because she had the only heated stalls in the region. In 1969 the Alaska Children's Zoo opened, taking in orphaned and injured animals that needed homes.

A very nice little Zoo with focus on the wildlife of Alaska. Especially when you visit in the winter, you get a realistic experience of the animals and the nature of Alaska.
