Gibbon Conservation Center

19100 Esquerra Rd.
Santa Clarita, CA 91380
Best Of
Whether you’ve seen a gibbon or not, the trip to this Santa Clarita Valley conservatory is worth it. Gibbons – a type of ape – have just the right ratio of arm length to body weight to make them the most natural acrobats on earth. That means you’ll see a lot of swinging, and also, you’ll hear a lot of singing – gibbons like to make noise. This center also happens to be the country’s largest zoological facility devoted to gibbon research.
