Jitke, a pileated gibbon at the Gibbons Conservation Center in the Santa Clarita Valley, pauses while swinging in his enclosure. The center's 32nd annual breakfast with the gibbons fundraiser is planned for Saturday.

 
Local residents will have the chance to spend their Saturday morning with apes as part of the Gibbons Conservation Center's annual fundraiser.

The event, which will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon, is set to include an opportunity to view the endangered species of apes and listen to their unique sounds.

The fundraiser, currently in its 32nd year, will also feature a guided tour of the largest group of gibbons in the Western Hemisphere, a light vegan breakfast, silent auction and a talk by Alan Mootnick, the center's founder.

Tickets are $30 for adults age 18 and older, $15 for teens age 13-17 and $10 for children age 3-12. The breakfast is free for children under 3 years old.

All proceeds will benefit the local Gibbons Conservation Center, a nonprofit center for the study and preservation of endangered species.

The center is located at 19100 Esquerra Road in Saugus.
