Meet The Gorilla Foundation
This video describes the history of The Gorilla Foundation which was formed several years after Dr. Penny Patterson began teaching 1-year old gorilla Koko sign language, as part of her Ph.D. dissertation in psychology at Stanford. Project Koko spanned 47 years, and Penny’s dedication to Koko grew into a dedication to save her species, who is critically endangered in the wild and wildly misunderstood in captivity.
