Fauna Foundation Visit

Binky chimpanzee

We are pleased to offer an on-site visitation program this fall. 


September 9, 2023



September 10, 2023



Tickets are $60.00 and nonrefundable. Tickets are limited and available on first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets must be purchased in advance.

The event will be held rain or shine. Please dress appropriately for outside and bring your own water.

What To Expect - The Agenda

We recommend you arrive 15 minutes in advance to check in with our Fauna staff. The event will take place whether rain or shine. If raining, be sure to wear water resistant footwear (preferably rainboots) and a rain jacket. If sunny, we recommend you bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and insect repellant.

This 1.5 hour event begins with a bilingual presentation about the Fauna Foundation and our  residents. It includes the natural history of some of our residents and general sanctuary etiquette.

We will walk around the Fauna property which is outside, so be prepared for all types of weather. Guests should expect to walk for approximately 30-45 minutes. The walk includes places around the Chimp House and Monkey House but not inside. The chimpanzees and monkeys are free to come to outside enclosures to visit guests passing by, but it is ultimately their choice. Guests should understand this visit is focused on learning about, rather than seeing, our residents. This is a working Sanctuary and our residents’ needs are a priority. We hope all guests share this philosophy.

Space is limited so secure your ticket today!  We look forward to seeing you at Fauna Foundation!
