Ibiúna Sanctuary (São Paulo)

It is the “youngster” GAP Brazil affiliated sanctuary. Its owners are Rubens and Claudia Fortes and nowadays it houses two young female chimpanzees that were rescued from a zoo that had been closed in Fortaleza due to the bad standards offered to animals. The installations are large, airy and have a lot of toys to cover the need of the two little ones, who have a lot of energy. The owners plan to expand the structure in order to receive other chimpanzees who might need a home in the future.
