One of Koko”s top 3 wishes (next to a baby and moving to the new preserve) is for people to be more “polite” to gorillas. Here she is signing “polite” to us, in an effort to make the point. Koko is well aware of what”s happening to gorillas in Africa, and her former companion, silverback Michael, experienced it personally as an infant. We agree with Koko, only we”d go even further and wish for humans to be more polite to all living creatures, including ourselves.
