GAP Project Brazil has four affiliated sanctuaries that are home for more than 80 chimpanzees and one orangutan. All of them fulfill and offers more than the standards defined by Ibama (Brazilian Environmental Authority) for great apes’ enclosures in captivity. Day-to-day routine and experience showed that their needs go beyond the descriptions of the current Brazilian legislation.
The enclosures of the sanctuaries have an internal area with connection aisles and an external area with solariums, where the chimpanzees can play, run, socialize and exercise.
It’s important to point that the Brazilian sanctuaries are independent and privately owned institutions, which means that they are financially supported by their owning families. Being affiliated to GAP means that they are aligned with the project ideas and are partners in the promotion of the cause.
