Adopt an Ape

It costs $20,000 a year to care for one of our apes. By symbolically adopting the ape of your choice for a one-time donation of $300 OR just $25 a month for one year, you are helping ensure the health, safety and well-being of your orangutan or chimpanzee. Your donation will go toward the basic items your ape needs such as food, medical care, habitat maintenance and enrichment activities that are so vital to these intelligent and sensitive individuals.

I am ready to make a difference! For a one-time donation of $300 OR just $25 a month for one year I can adopt an ape for myself or as a meaningful one-of-a-kind gift and help provide lifetime care for the orangutan or chimpanzee of my choice.

Have questions about adopting an ape? Need help choosing which ape you would like to adopt? Contact Education and Outreach Coordinator Lauren at 863-767-8903 ext. 224 or outreach@centerforgreatapes.org.
