Primate Protection Sanctuary

September 22 @ 8:45 AM - 12:30 PM

The International Primate Protection League (IPPL), an international organization dedicated to helping primates in need around the world, maintains a Headquarters Sanctuary in Summerville, South Carolina, where dozens of gibbons (the smallest of the apes) currently reside. Join us for this visit to the unique International Primate Protection Sanctuary and meet with Dr. Shirley McGreal, director and founder of the IPPL, who will introduce us to the gibbons in her care. We will observe the gibbons in their outdoor habitat: we learn about their history and habits as well as the mission of the sanctuary. Easy walking.
