Getting To Know Them Better

Harry, with his beautiful long hair and round cheekpads, is a fully-flanged adult male orangutan.  Originally born in Miami at the same facility as some of our other CGA residents, Harry is related to several of our orangutans.  In fact, he looks almost identical to his full brother BamBam.  BamBam is 14 months older than Harry, but Harry is much larger! 

Harry’s background was in the entertainment business in California for a few years, but most recently he lived in Central Florida.  We’re very grateful that his owner decided to give Harry the opportunity for sanctuary care for the rest of his life.

With his sweet and agreeable disposition, Harry is very charming.  He loves to swing through his habitat on the firehose vines and enjoys spending time in our aerial trailways observing the sanctuary around him.

It costs $22,000 a year to care for one of our apes. By symbolically adopting the ape of your choice for a one-time donation of $300 OR just $25 a month for one year, you are helping ensure the health, safety, and well-being of your orangutan or chimpanzee.

Can't Adopt?

In addition to cash donations, the Center for Great Apes is always in need of food, enrichment items, and supplies. We welcome gifts of all kinds.
