Whoop Whoop is a gibbon who was incarcerated at a laboratory in

  • offering advisory and financial support for activities that help monkeys and apes, both in the U.S. and overseas;
  • granting financial assistance for programs that protect primates and their habitat within their native countries;
  • publicizing the plight of primates in trouble and organizing international protest campaigns;
  • conducting investigations of illegal international primate trafficking; and
  • operating a sanctuary for rescued gibbon apes in South Carolina.
