There are no wildlife tours out of Talkeetna.

If you just want to flightsee Denali--and that is about seeing The Mountain, not wildlife--I suggest doing that from Anchorage (Rust's). Costs more, but then you don't have to pay train/bus fares, and if the weather is bad for flying, you can try again later in the day (or maybe the next day depending how long you're in Anchorage).

Will you be visiting the Wildlife Conservation Center 1 hr. south of Anchorage? That is your best chance to see a variety of animals in a fairly natural setting. You can get there on a day tour such as Salmon Berry, or there is a new hop-on, hop-off shuttle that started this year that has the WCC as one of their stops: http://www.turnagainshuttle.com/
