IPPL is a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the world’s remaining primates, great and small. Since 1973 we have worked to expose primate abuse and battled international traffickers. We also operate a sanctuary for gibbons (the smallest of the apes) in South Carolina and support primate rescue efforts worldwide, especially in countries where primates are native. Our goal is to keep these uniquely threatened animals safe from human cruelty, negligence, and exploitation, envisioning a world where all primates can thrive in their native habitats.
Our South Carolina Headquarters Sanctuary provides a lifetime of compassionate care for gibbons after former “careers” as laboratory subjects, discarded pets, and zoo exhibits.
