    [title] => Dr. Penny Patterson and her Dad are Aligned on this Point...
    [body] => Yesterday, we featured, Dr. Penny Patterson"s father, Dr. Cecil Patterson, in the KokoPix PhotoBlog.  Today, we just wanted to emphasize how closely aligned they are on the matter of great ape conservation.  Both Pattersons seem to agree that the future of great apes (including humans) depends on the willingness of humans to wake up to the reality that we are not the only conscious beings on the planet, and that the "purpose" of other (non-human) beings is not ours alone to decide.  The challenge then is for "humans" to become more conscious (not gorillas).  If you don"t believe that Dr. C. and Dr. P. are in alignment on this, just check out their body language in this photo.

    [title] => Penny"s Dad Continues to be an Inspiration and a Model
    [body] => Penny"s father, Dr. Cecil Patterson, who just turned 92 this June, recently visited the Foundation and gave us all a fresh perspective on life - making us think, be more aware and appreciate every moment.  Since the beginning of Project Koko, Dr. C. has been a constant source of support, both as a member and as an advisor, and the gorillas consider him to be like a "grandfather."  
As a world-renowned Professor of Psychology at the University of Illinois for many years (now professor emeritus), Dr. C. Patterson was one of the founding fathers of "client centered psychotherapy."  His recent book, Understanding Psychotherapy: Fifty Years of Client-Centered Theory and Practice is a great summary of his work, and his website: sageofasheville.com includes a good sample of some of his well-earned wisdom (see Sayings of the Sage). 
After meeting Dr. C.,  it"s not difficult to imagine where Penny (Dr. P.)  got much of her clarity of thought, persistence and good nature.  Great Apes have two remarkable friends in Drs. C. and P. Patterson - and anyone who comes into contact with them.

Since the beginning of Project Koko, Dr. C. has been a constant source of support, both as a member and as an advisor, and the gorillas consider him to be like a "grandfather."  
As a world-renowned Professor of Psychology at the University of Illinois for many years (now professor emeritus), Dr. C. Patterson was one of the founding fathers of "client centered psychotherapy."  His recent book, Understanding Psychotherapy: Fifty Years of Client-Centered Theory and Practice is a great summary of his work, and his website: sageofasheville.com includes a good sample of some of his well-earned wisdom (see Sayings of the Sage). 
After meeting Dr. C.,  it"s not difficult to imagine where Penny (Dr. P.)  got much of her clarity of thought, persistence and good nature.  Great Apes have two remarkable friends in Drs. C. and P. Patterson - and anyone who comes into contact with them.

    [title] => Ndume"s a Little Stressed by Recent Events
    [body] => Ndume, Koko"s male companion, has been a little anxious since Koko"s medical procedure last week.  Not because he"s read the recent press release or had a sign-language discussion with Dr. Penny Patterson.  But because of all the strange visitors that have been on the premises.  A Silverback"s mission in life is to protect his family, and having a team of medical experts working on one"s companion (Koko) behind closed doors would  increase the stress level of any male gorilla - even one as laid back as Ndume.  Fortunately, extra attention by Gorilla Foundation caregivers (including Penny and Ron) are helping Ndume slowly return to his normal sweet and calm disposition.

    [body] => Koko has been recovering quickly since her dramatic tooth and gum procedure (almost 2 weeks ago) and is essentially off all of her pain medications.  In her new, progressively pain-free life, Koko"s focus has also changed.  Just yesterday, when Penny was discussing the plans for the new Maui Ape Preserve with colleague Chris Mitchell (founder of the Michael Sanctuary for orphan gorillas in Cameroon, Africa), Koko, who was overhearing their conversation, immediately went to her room, grabbed an Hawaiian lei and put it around her neck and picked up her favorite baby doll.  Koko is very clear about her priorities.

    [body] => On the first day after Koko"s dental work and medical exam Koko was feeling some pain (which we dealt with via pain medications prescribed by the docs). By the second and third day (today), she was feeling a lot better, reducing the pain medication toward zero, and more energetic than we"ve seen her in a long time.  


In fact, she"s raring to get outside again, but has to stay inside her comfortable air-conditioned room for another day or two, to ensure that she doesn"t get anything microbially suspicious in her mouth. When other caregivers (besides Penny) come by, she keeps pointing to her mouth exuberantly, as if to say: "look, they fixed me." It"s so nice to see Koko feeling herself again!

    [body] => Koko had been having a problem with one of her teeth for quite a while, and told us both via sign language and by pointing to a pain chart that registered between 1 and 10.   When Koko started pointing toward 9, it was time to act.


On Sunday, a number of dental and medical specialists visited Koko (yes, doctors do house calls for gorillas) and, while she was under anesthesia, they performed both a tooth extraction and a comprehensive medical exam. Both were successful and Koko was given a clean bill of health.

Koko will be eating soft foods (laying off the produce) for a few days, but after that she"ll probably start enjoying her food a lot more than during those annoying pain-chart days.
