Kenai Stories and Tips

Wildlife in Kenai!

Romance in the River Photo, Kenai, Alaska

There is perhaps no natural wonder that can rival the stunning composition of wildlife. An estimated 8,000 moose roam the peninsula, grazing on willow and tender meadow shoots. Nimble Dall sheep and mountain goats tread across the steep slopes. Secluded edges of marshy lakes come alive with the honking of trumpeter swans and Canada Geese. The magnificent caribou and salmon hungry brown bear are found here. Chubby-bodied puffins skim across ocean waters. Shoreline rocks and close-by islands are overwhelmed with thousands of sea birds and pods of enormous whales surface offshore. Bald Eagles scan lush boreal forests for small prey such as the hoary marmot, marten, weasel and snowshoe hares.
