Koko"s Valentine"s Day Couple


Posted On: March 12, 2010

Photographer: Ron Cohn

One of the presents Penny (Dr. Penny Patterson) gave Koko for Valentine"s Day was a tiny stuffed gorilla couple (the female has the red bow in her hair). When Penny told Koko the little couple represented her and Ndume, Koko kissed them both. She"s just one sentimental lowland gorilla.

With a little more love (and hard work) we will see what we can do to foster the expansion of Koko and Ndume"s family and facilities this year. You can help!
