Looking for wild animals? We got ‘em. Fully two-thirds of Kodiak Island is a wildlife conservation sanctuary established in 1941 “for the purpose of protecting the natural feeding and breeding range of the brown bears and other wildlife.”
Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge is a diverse ecosystem comprising 1.9 million acres across four islands in the Kodiak Archipelago with dense forests of Sitka spruce, wide-open grasslands and several glaciers. It is home to 2,300 brown bears, 1,200 bald eagles, 250 species of other birds, all five species of Pacific salmon, steelhead and Dolly Varden trout, red fox, river otters, Sitka black-tailed deer, mountain goats, elk, beavers and more. Many, many more.
There are so many Alaska activities to do in the Refuge, it would be impossible to list them all. Suffice it to say, you can camp, hike, fish, hunt, birdwatch, kayak, raft and just about anything else you can dream up that doesn’t negatively impact the area’s pristine wilderness beauty.
When you own a home at Cliff Point Estates, Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge isn’t just the place you’ll take visiting friends and family – it’s your backyard.
