Koko"s interested in her environment

Like any captive-and captivating-gorilla, Koko is interested in her environment. However, since Koko happens to have learned a human language, she can use language to get some of this information. As Koko gets older, she seems to be increasingly interested in improving her reading and writing skills - in addition to her already impressive skills of using American Sign Language and understanding spoken English.

We"ll be sharing more of her communication activities with you in "video" mode, via the upcoming "KokoFlix" section of Stay tuned (visit our home page often) . . .
