Here at A.P.E.S, we care for two Capuchin monkeys and eight White-Handed Gibbons. We are a non-profit organization located in Blacklick, Ohio which houses primates that were previously kept as household pets.
This year's fundraiser was the best ever! A special thanks to the person who anonymously paid for our bounce house. We really appreciate everyone who came out to support us. Thanks to:
The A.P.E.S. organization is committed to be protectors, conservationists, caregivers and educators for all primates, especially the Capuchin and the endangered White-Handed Gibbon.
To practice excellent husbandry, training and housing standards for our animals.
To educate people who think they want a primate.
To help educate college students majoring in zoology, anthropology and other sciences on what it means to work with exotic animals, while gaining hands-on experience.
To help with conservation in Asia and South America with other primate organizations, as well as sharing ideas with other zoos & sanctuaries around the U.S.
