Welcome to Fauna Foundation

We have provided sanctuary to chimpanzees, monkeys, and farm animals for over 25 years. We have created a protected conservation area to provide peace, privacy, and healing for our residents and native species.

We do not have any public visitor programs.

We Are Canada's Only Chimpanzee Sanctuary

Through sanctuary, conservation and education we aim to foster a better understanding of all animals while exploring our ethical responsibility as humans for the well-being for all earth's creatures. Sanctuary means providing a place of refuge for animals who have come to us from the research, agriculture, and entertainment industries. Over the past decades, Fauna Foundation Sanctuary has provided permanent protection for these nonhuman animals from the use and abuse our culture previously inflicted upon them as tools for medical research and education, objects of private ownership, sources of food and forced entertainment.
