She learned to communicate with humans, and in doing so helped enliven protection her entire species. I wish more folk in the lowlands of Africa would know her story.

I read this earlier this morning. Oddly enough, this news saddened me nearly as much as the news of Robin Williams' passing.

Koko was only a few years younger than me and has been a "presence" for most of my cognitive life. That, combined with her remarkable abilities, makes the news of her passing particularly sad.



It is what it is.
