Please click here  to learn more about the Center and the wonderful work they do. Please help us support their amazing work.  

 

 

Meet Harry  

 

 

 

 

Harry, with his beautiful long hair and round cheek-pads, is a fully-flanged adult male orangutan. Harry’s background was in the entertainment business in California for a few years, but most recently he lived in Central Florida before finding a permanent home at CGA. With his sweet and agreeable disposition, Harry is charming his new caregivers and has been particularly interested in watching the noisy chimpanzees nearby. He’s eating very well now and has started to explore the grounds in our aerial trailway chutes.

 

CGA is the ONLY accredited sanctuary for orangutans in the United States. It offers a permanent home to more than 50 orangutans and chimpanzees and receives no government funding.  

 

 

Say “hello” to Marco

 

 

 

Marco is the oldest great ape at the sanctuary and arrived here in November 2005 after living alone for 30 years in a tiny, backyard cage in South Carolina.

He was born in the wilds of Africa. When his mother was shot and killed by poachers, Marco was taken to be sold and shipped to North America. He ended up with a circus family and performed in a small traveling circus in Oklahoma. When the circus trainers bought him, he had rickets (a nutritional deficiency of vitamin D). The rickets possibly affected his development and overall size because Marco is the smallest adult male chimpanzee most people have ever seen.

At 55 years old, Marco weighs only about 80 pounds (a full-grown, adult male weighs 145 to 180 pounds in captivity). People sometimes think he looks like a miniature gorilla because Marco has a very square-shaped hip and rear end stance with a lot of silver hair on his back.

When his circus owners retired, they sold the other chimpanzees in their act, but kept Marco as a pet since he was the youngest and smallest. So, for the next 30 years, he lived alone at their home never seeing another chimpanzee. When he arrived at the Center for Great Apes, he was very nervous around the other chimps, but eventually was successfully introduced to Butch, another wild-caught, older ex-circus chimpanzee. Butch and Marco are now the best of friends and don’t like to be parted from each other.

 

 

Please do something amazing and support the Center for Great Apes. Do come to the free exhibition, we will be offering annual memberships at a discounted price or donate now and know you are making a difference in the lives of over 50 intelligent and emotionally aware residents of the Center.
