The Gorilla Foundation established Wildlife Protectors Fund in response to the Bushmeat crisis- the slaughter of the great apes and other protectors and endangered wildlife in Africa for the commercial trade of their meat. The Fund was established in memory of Wendy Gordon,a passionate researched assistant with the Gorilla Foundation from 1991-1998. The primary program of The Gorilla Foundation / Koko.org involved teaching American sign language to two lowland gorillas, Koko and Michael (who recently passed away). Koko , a female lowland gorilla born in 1971 had a kitten but it got hit by car. Michael a male lowland gorilla born in 1973 uses sign language and understands spoken English.
