The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center (AWCC), Alaska’s premier wildlife sanctuary, has received a $250,000.00 grant from Matson to help fund an Ocean Education Center, to be located at The Point, where AWCC meets the waters of Turnagain Arm. Critically endangered Cook Inlet beluga whales can be seen from this location at high tides, especially in summer when they chase silver salmon right by the area. This exciting partnership will enable AWCC to build a classroom with viewing deck at The Point for expanded education programs highlighting beluga whales, icebergs, bore tides and the glaciers that carved the valley and fjord.
