Reading 8 - Koko, the incredible gorilla (Nivel básico)

Koko, the Incredible Gorilla


Koko was an incredible gorilla who captured the hearts of people worldwide. She was born in the San Francisco Zoo in 1971 and became famous for her exceptional ability to communicate with humans through sign language.


Firstly, Koko was a gentle giant. She was known for her playful nature and her deep love for her caregivers, Penny Patterson and Ron Cohn. Koko's connection with Penny was especially strong, and they formed a unique bond over the years.


Moreover, Koko's signing vocabulary was vast. She could understand and use more than 1,000 signs, allowing her to express her thoughts, emotions, and desires. This groundbreaking communication demonstrated the cognitive abilities of gorillas and challenged our understanding of their intelligence.


In addition to her linguistic skills, Koko had a creative side. She enjoyed painting and created colorful works of art. Her artwork was even exhibited in galleries, further highlighting her talent and uniqueness.


Sadly, Koko passed away in 2018, leaving behind a legacy of bridging the gap between humans and gorillas. Her story continues to inspire people to advocate for the conservation of these incredible creatures.
