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.

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

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
