While living in Thailand in the 70’s, Dr. McGreal rescued four gibbons who were being kept as pets. She brought them to Summerville, SC and established IPPL’s Gibbon Sanctuary.
GIBBONS CURRENTLY LIVING AT OUR SANCTUARY
All of IPPL’s gibbons belong to the white-handed gibbon species, Hylobates lar. Both sexes of white-handed gibbons can be either light-colored (ranging from blonde to honey-brown) or black. All have white face rings and white hands and feet.

*Please note that IPPL is a sanctuary, dedicated to the comfort and safety of our gibbons. Therefore, we are not open to the public.
