Dear Valued Supporter,

I invite you to watch our birthday tribute video above to reconnect with Koko’s 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 develop our key programs, expand our work, and grow partnerships with gorilla institutions around the world.

To support these critical programs please make a contribution in honor of Koko’s birthday today.

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