This was a great experience for a group of Seniors. The Gibbons were singing ,Swinging and very entertaining . The docent filled us with all the information regarding their diet health, how they live in groups. Extremely knowledgeable and informative. It was a great day!

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
