Ibiúna Sanctuary/SP

It is the newest GAP Brazil affiliated sanctuary and its owners are Rubens and Claudia Forte. It is home of two young female chimpanzees that were rescued from a zoo that had been closed in Fortaleza (northeast of Brazil) due to the bad standards offered to the animals. The facilities are large, airy and have a lot of toys to cover the need of the two chimpanzees. The owners plan to expand the structure in order to receive other chimpanzees who might need a home in the future.
