The Center for Great Apes is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) sanctuary dedicated to providing a permanent sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees who have been retired from the entertainment industry, from research, or are no longer wanted as pets. The Center provides care with dignity in a safe, healthy, and enriching environment for great apes needing lifetime care. While the Center for Great Apes is not open to the public, we offer tours under special circumstances and for educational purposes. Therefore, we are sure you will understand that all tours are subject to certain parameters.
Scheduled tours run from 12:30 PM –2:00 PM and will be a walking tour of about ¼ mile on shell-rock paths. Tours are held rain or shine. The donation cost is $50 per person. All visitors must register before the tour date and be at least 15 years old to attend. Registration is limited to the first 20 people.
