Since 1994, IPPL has rescued dozens of gibbons, some originally wild caught who had the misfortune of then spending years, even decades, in research labs. Others were born in labs, spent years in zoos, tourist attractions or as pets. Currently IPPL has 30 exceptional gibbons living at our sanctuary. In addition to providing the best care possible for them, IPPL also provides financial assistance to our Global Partners who are committed to protecting and saving gibbons in Asia. IPPL is grateful every day for the generous support of our many friends.

Globally, gibbons are one of the most threatened families of primates; five species are considered Critically Endangered, 14 Endangered and one Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™.
