History of Drill Ranch
After recording over 250 births, the Drill program is the most successful captive breeding of an endangered primate in the world.
In 2001, President Olusegun Obasanjo visited the Drill ranch and this was the only wildlife facility he visited during his eight years tenure.
Built by Lisa Gadsby and Peter Jenkins in 1991.
The Drill ranch and rehabilitation center is a wild life sanctuary that hopes to preserve and ensure continuity of the endangered primate species drills. It serves to rehabilitate drills with members of their species and also provides a safe haven for orphaned chimpanzees.
This is a very safe location.
