There are many viewing opportunities to see Alaska wildlife at Rainbow King Lodge; every fly-out puts you even further into the Alaskan wilderness. Alaska has over 430 species of birds, the largest population of bald eagles in the nation, and the largest carnivorous land mammal in the world, the brown bear. There are more than 50,000 black bears and 35,000 brown bears living in Alaska’s untamed wilderness: they’re lumbering through berry-covered hillsides, raising their young and slapping at salmon-choked rivers. From pygmy shrews that weigh less than a penny to gray whales that weigh anywhere from 16 to 45 tons, Alaska is the Last Frontier for animals as well as people. Species endangered elsewhere are still abundant in Alaska.
