Mammal, Bird & Reptile Permits
Keeping Live Wildlife for Unique Reasons
Alaska’s laws on possessing native and nonnative wild animals, including as pets, are strict, and they differ from laws in other states. The goal of these laws is to protect Alaska’s valuable wildlife populations from diseases, parasites, and a variety of other negative effects that can result from contact of native species with nonnative species. Check the laws and do not import or release illegal animals.
