Want to join the Great Ape Society?
As the only accredited orangutan sanctuary in the country and one of a handful of accredited chimpanzee sanctuaries, The Center for Great Apes has been rescuing great apes for over 25 years. The Center for Great Apes does not receive funding from the government; we are supported by generous donations from people like you who care about the future of these majestic and sensitive creatures, senselessly removed from their natural habitat and mothers as infants. By making the Center for Great Apes a philanthropic priority, members of the Great Ape Society help ensure the long-term care of the apes and the future of the sanctuary.
Great Ape Society members are entitled to all the benefits of regular sanctuary membership such as members-only invitations to sanctuary events, email updates and our e-newsletter that takes you inside the sanctuary and the everyday lives of our apes and their activities, our PrimeApes annual update, plus recognition on the sanctuary’s Great Ape Appreciation Wall, a private scheduled VIP tour and more, depending on your Great Ape Society Membership Level.
