Giving Day for Apes

Giving Day for Apes is a global day to raise awareness and individual support for great apes and gibbons throughout Africa, Asia, and North America. Save the Chimps is one of 35 participating sanctuaries.

This year we will be hosting a special event in honor of Giving Day for Apes — for every $35 donation made in honor of that day — guests can virtually tour our Sanctuary via a private video link.  The link isn’t active yet, but if you want to save your spot, email
