Dear Valued Supporter,

As a recent donor to The Gorilla Foundation, I wanted to make sure you got to view the above Koko birthday tribute video, and to reconnect with her legacy — and the 4-part plan we’ve developed to save gorillas from both extinction and captivity!

Your financial support is an important investment to help us realize this plan, expand our work, and grow partnerships with gorilla institutions around the world, with the joint goal of bringing about radical improvements to the lives of our fellow great apes (as described in the above video).

Please donate today to save gorillas:

Last Chance: If you make a one-time gift of $100 or more — or a monthly donation of $10 or more — you’ll receive a beautiful Koko Plush gorilla as a special thank you gift in honor of Koko’s birthday.

Thank you so much for caring about the future of gorillas, and having confidence in The Gorilla Foundation — and Koko’s Legacy — to ensure it!

Penny Gives Smoky to Koko

With Koko-Love,
