Koko is a female lowland gorilla born in 1971. When the little ape baby, Koko was put together with a psychology graduate student named Francine “Penny” Patterson, the American Sign Language took on new meaning.
It was supposed to be just a short research project. However, as it began, it soon became clear it was to be a lengthy process of learning.
Millions see in Koko, soulful eyes, and intelligence. Do you?
Thanks for visiting.
