Celebrating Mattie the Gibbon's Birthday at North GA Zoo!
Mattie is a white handed Gibbon ape. Gibbons are the smallest of the ape family. Gibbons have long arms for swinging through trees and long fingers for foraging for seeds and nuts. Mattie loves to swing but also loves to use her long arms for hugging her best friend Bubbles the Basset Hound. Her long fingers come in handy when keepers hand out enrichment items, treats and for opening birthday cards!
SEND HER A BIRTHDAY CARD!!
Watch her open them during the Behind the Scenes Tour! Or if you can't join us and want to see her open her birthday cards...a video will be posted to Facebook, website and YouTube!
Mattie said she would appreciate any Donations in the form of Lowe's and Home Depot cards! (Plastic cards she can't destroy when she opens her cards!)
* Proceeds will go to: play gym, lemur exhibit and more!

All those who send a card will be entered into a drawing
for a Free family 4 pack pass!
