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.

The Gibbon Conservation Center was like walking into a concert when we arrived in the morning slightly before opening. I was caught up in all the beautiful sounds that I forgot to take video of the beautiful songs being sang sadly. As we walked around...More

I had never heard of the Gibbon Conservation Center, until one day a few years ago, when I was at a vegetable stand that was on quiet Bouquet Canyon, and I heard the most unusual animal sounds in the distance. I was curious about them,...More

Great place, informative staff and tour. Go early so you can hear them greet each other in the morning. Their "howls" are amazing!

You'll get to understand why the conservation is so far off the community when you get out of your car. We were welcomed by a medley of whooping and screeching sound and it my 2yr old excited to see what the hullabaloo about. It has...More

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
