How can I visit Save the Chimps?

Save the Chimps is closed to the public as part of our mission to give the chimpanzees a peaceful and dignified retirement. We do have several unique ways you can visit the Sanctuary.

Member Day – Donors at the $50 level and above may register for a guided large group tour of the sanctuary.

Chimpathon – Walk or run in our annual Chimpathon 16k race.  You can expect to see many of our chimpanzee residents – as you run beside their island homes.

Caregiver Society – Join a unique leadership group of supporters who are ensuring the long-term future of Save the Chimps. At the donation level of $1,600 or higher you and a guest are  invited to join us for Caregiver Society Day which includes a VIP tour of the Sanctuary, a guest speaker, and lunch overlooking Air Force island. Donors at the $5,000 level or higher are invited for a private tour of the Sanctuary for seven guests, in addition to the invitation to Caregiver Society Day.

Volunteer – Caring for nearly 250 chimpanzees is a 365 day a year job, and wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of volunteers who offer their time and talents to help fulfill our mission. Whether you help at our Sanctuary located in Fort Pierce, Florida, in your community, or from your home, you’ll make a real difference in the lives of the nearly 250 chimpanzees in our care.

Sign up for e-mail newsletters to stay updated on other ways to visit the sanctuary including exciting items in our bi-annual online auction such as shadowing a vet for a day or the Save the Chimps Field Experience.

(Please note there is no direct contact with chimpanzees. All encounters with chimpanzees will be from a safe distance, behind stainless steel mesh that separates the chimpanzees from the humans.)
