Overview
More
The Gibbon Conservation Center is home to more than 40 highly endangered gibbon apes (small apes). This peaceful location is where gibbons live in family groups, raise their infants and socialize as they would in the wild. A guided tour is given at 10:00 a.m. on weekends, when they are open to the public between 9:30 a.m. and noon. Wonderful photo opportunities and a chance to watch gibbons swing from branch to branch and hear them sing their melodic songs. There is a gift shop on site. Private and school tours are available on weekdays.

Gibbons are not monkeys! The staff is friendly and full of information about the Gibbons. They accept donations to help with the finances of running the refuge for Gibbons

If you want to spend 15 minutes of your time it's something to do---the drive to and from will take longer than visiting this place. It's not bad just not much

My family and I just got back from visiting the Gibbon Conservation and really enjoyed it. They are only open on weekends (9:30 am-12) with one paid tour at 10. The enclosure is relatively small and you will definitely NOT interact with the Gibbons but...More

This is the most amazing tour I have ever been on. The center is run solely by 3 very dedicated, knowledgeable women. It is a distance off the freeway, but well worth the drive. They are currently only open on the weekends, but will accommodate...More

This small facility is quite interesting. The tour is optional and free, but well worth the price of admission. There is a lot to know about gibbons in general and, more specifically, the gibbons who live here. We really enjoyed the wild and loud "singing"...More

The Gibbon conservation center is an excellent place to visit and take your family. If you can go for the breakfast with the Gibbons it is terrific....well worth your time and money.

Even though it's small, it's so lovely. Our tour guide was sweet and very informative. My son loved the apes and at the end of tour the apes start to sing and it's amazing!!
