Mia is the newest arrival at our gibbon sanctuary. A charming, fluffy, 23-year-old widow newly retired from Mississippi’s Jackson Zoo, she came to IPPL March 13. And she’s ready for love!

Lovely Mia, now looking for love.


But who will be the lucky bachelor? She has four to choose from: Louie-Louie, Maynard, Gus, and Spanky.


Guess correctly who she’ll choose, and get a chance to take a personal tour of IPPL’s private sanctuary! 


Vote for Mia's prime-mate!

We are not open to the public, so this is a unique opportunity to see the gibbons sing and swing for yourself.

We plan to close the voting May 1. We’ll pick a random winner from the list of correct guessers. So try your matchmaking skills today!

    I vote for Louie-Louie!! They look the most alike and close to the same age ☺☺

    I vote for Maynard. He looks sweet.

    I vote for Maynard!! Super cute.

    I’ll have to vote for Louie-Louie since both he and Mia are mature adults that have been married before and understand what marriage is all about…….with that said, a swinging affair with young, bad boy Maynard could be very enticing!!!!!
