Weekend Tours Supporting The Gibbon Conservation Center
19100 Esguerra Road
661 296 2737
Learn about these unique apes at this one-of-a-kind venue!
The non-profit organization wants to remind the public the clock is ticking on its ability to stay at its current (rented) location in Santa Clarita. They’re looking for help to find a new, safe home for this rare population of Gibbons.
As you might remember, when founder, Alan Mootnick, passed away in 2011, the GCC’s future looked uncertain. They lost ownership of the land, and in order to stay at the current location, they had to start paying rent.
The land surrounding the Center is in the midst of a development boom. The open land that at one time provided the GCC with an ample buffer is slowly disappearing. Homes are being built closer and closer to the facility.
The Gibbon Center’s survival depends on moving to a better location as soon as we are able to do so.
The non-profit organization is looking at sites in a more temperate climate, such as San Diego, Santa Barbara, or Sonoma Counties with at least 20 acres of usable land, a house, electricity, water, and a road wide enough for school buses and fire trucks to reach the facility. It is also imperative they have a buffer from neighboring properties so that other residents are not disturbed by the Gibbon’s “singing.” To buy land and relocate, the GCC says it needs to raise at least $750,000 to make a down payment and an additional $250,000 for the move.
While raising funds to relocate, they must continue securing funds for daily operations, animal care and, unfortunately, rent. Any donation will bring us closer to our goal of acquiring a permanent home for the GCC.
