Alaska, The Last Frontier. The 50th US State is our largest – far bigger than Texas, California and Montana combined – more than 20% of the continental US. Alaska is an outpost for adventurers, for naturalists, and it tells a story of the natural world too. The abundance and diversity of Alaskan animal life is awe inspiring. In a place like Alaska there is plenty of room to grow – and hide. From the lowly murderous mosquito to the impressive Bald Eagle, this is the big and the small of Alaskan beasts.
