Step Into the Wild with the A.P.E.S.

The Animal Preservation and Education Sanctuary is a non-profit Organization. Our mission is to provide a permanent sanctuary in a safe and enriching environment for wild and or endangered animals in need of permanent lifetime care. We maintain these animals in a safe and enriching habitat in accordance with state and federal regulations and in fact exceed these requirements. The Sanctuary also provides educational programs for the public. These programs inform the community about these endangered animals and their need for conservation in the wild as well as their need for protection in captivity.
