White-handed Gibbon

Our boy Georgie is the star of the show, brachiating from one end of his large, arboreal habitat in Asia Trek to the other. He enjoys watching our guests and may zip over to a crowd to say hello! Gibbon Trails habitat allows guests several vantage points from which to observe Georgie and his mate, Malay, from the treehouse to the overhead tunnels. Part of the Species Survival Plan, Georgie and Malay will hopefully one day make their contribution to the White Handed Gibbon Species Survival Plan breeding efforts.
