The McNeil River was created from glaciers and alpine lakes and has become a prime location for wildlife, especially the wild brown bears.

In 1967, the Alaska State Legislature designated this region as a wildlife sanctuary which was expanded in 1993 to protect the bears which reside in the area. Spanning about 200 square miles, the McNeil River Sanctuary is also home to salmon, red fox, arctic ground squirrels, harbour seals, bald eagles, moose, caribou, wolves, waterfowl and sea birds.

Humans have left this sanctuary untouched and there is one way into the region and that is by air. Only those who have an access permit are allowed into the McNeil River Sanctuary in order to control any human interaction with the bears. Those who are honored with passes must be accompanied by armed department staff and rules around the sanctuary are strictly enforced to ensure the wildlife and humans are safe.
