The Gorilla Foundation

The Gorilla Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation, protection and well-being of gorillas and other great apes through interspecies communication research and education. Established in 1976 as a 501(c)(3) corporation, it is best known for “Project Koko,”  the longest interspecies communication study in history, and the only one involving gorillas.  It  has evolved into an institution that provides a unique resource for great ape conservation, care and understanding.


“Kiki, Michael and the entire team at Kikim Media were a joy to work with. Their professionalism, reassuring manner and attention to detail was outstanding and they took all the time needed to enable us to feel comfortable. The final result was an extraordinarily compelling and polished piece which way exceeded our expectations. We are immensely grateful to you all.”
