Member Day – December 5, 2020

Out of respect to our resident chimpanzees, we are closed to the public. But once a year, we open our doors to our beloved members so they can see their work up close. Become a member and tour the beautiful 150-acre chimpanzee sanctuary, home to nearly 240 chimpanzees. Members will observe the chimpanzees as they roam the islands covered in grass, palm trees, hills, and climbing structures. Seeing these sights is a one-of-a-kind experience!

Consider underwriting any of these events.
