Determined and innovative
Apenheul opened with primates at large in 1971. This was soon to be followed by great apes living on cleverly designed islands. This was revolutionary for man and animal alike. Visitors can meet the primates directly, living in a natural environment where they can be themselves.
The primates at Apenheul act as ambassadors for their wild relatives. Our goal here is to pass on a love of nature.
Apenheul is a foundation. We are not subsidized and are completely dependant on visitors for our income.
