Wish List

We have a constant and ever-changing list of needs for our residents and for the smooth operation of the center.

Our residents always need food (both fresh fruit and vegetables as well as healthy treats) and items which they can use as toys and enrichment materials.

And of course the Center for Great Apes can always use cash and in-kind donations!

Many times our supporters want to know what we need at the sanctuary. Below is a list of the most often used commodities... as well as some special "wish list" items we hope to have someday!
