Throughout Alaska, even in our state’s urban centers, humans share habitat with wild animals. Part of life for children who grow up in Alaska is learning how to act safely around potentially dangerous wildlife such as bears, moose and wolves.
ADF&G offers lesson plans, posters, coloring books, and in some regions, classroom presentations, to help teach children and adults about wildlife safety.
