A sanctuary home for chimpanzees and orangutans...

At the Center for Great Apes, chimpanzees and orangutans find a sanctuary that mirrors the climate of their native lands and offers large enriching habitat space with skilled professionals ready and willing to provide a compassionate and caring environment. Today, the Center for Great Apes is home to 52 chimpanzees and orangutans who have been rescued or retired from the entertainment industry, the exotic pet trade, and research facilities. 

Located on over 120 acres in south-central Florida, the sanctuary is working on expanding to rescue and retire future chimpanzee and orangutan residents.

Our Giving Day for Apes donation goal is $40,000. This amount will help us care for all of our chimpanzee and orangutan residents' daily care.
