Meet Chena

Chena the Canadian Lynx arrived at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in 2014 after being rescued from North Pole, Alaska.
From a young age Chena had been kept illegally inside a small chicken coop and as a result, has developed multiple physical handicaps. Since coming to AWCC, Chena’s life has improved dramatically. She can often be seen eating full chicken breasts and bathing in the sun.
