      The Experience

      Founded in 1976 by Alan Richard Mootnick, the Gibbon Conservation Center (GCC) houses the rarest group of small Asian apes in the Western Hemisphere. They currently house 39 gibbons, representing five species. All are on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species list. One of them, the northern white-cheeked gibbon, is critically endangered.

      The mission of the GCC is to promote the conservation, study, and care of gibbons through public education and habitat preservation. They educate the public about gibbons, threats to their survival, and the actions the public can take to protect them.

      Your day will start by learning about the GCC and its mission and gibbon basics. Did you know gibbons are apes, not monkeys? If you are lucky, you will experience the gibbons singing their territorial song, an unforgettable experience.

      After going over safety training, you will start preparing food for 39 gibbons. Then you will go around and feed everyone while learning about the individual gibbon and family dynamics. You will able to see the gibbons up close and at Gabi's discretion, toss food to the gibbons. After feeding, you'll create some enrichment for them and deliver it to one of the gibbons.

      *Requirements: Signed Liability Release and medical clearances.
