Here at A.P.E.S, we care for eight White-Handed Gibbons. We are a non-profit organization located in Blacklick, Ohio which houses primates that were previously kept as household pets.
We Need Your Help!
For the last three years, a grocery store has helped us by donating food to feed our primates, but they have decided not to continue their support.
Ways you can help:

Many thanks to our business donors, and especially to our volunteers.
