Coming Soon: The Maui Ape Preserve

The Gorilla Foundation is constructing a unique and critically important gorilla preserve on west Maui, Hawaii.

Maui Ape Preserve

The Maui Ape Preserve will provide a natural environment for Koko and other gorillas, and is a vital step toward saving the species from imminent extinction. MAP will consist of a secluded Sanctuary on 70 acres of land provided by the Maui Land and Pineapple Company, and a unique high-tech Visitor Education Center in a convenient tourist location. Construction is in progress — and now you can help!

Meet Koko, the gorilla who has learned to speak to us in sign language, and Gorilla Foundation co-founders, Drs. Penny Patterson and Ron Cohn. Learn how and why the Foundation has evolved from an interspecies communications research project into a world-wide conservation project. The Foundation is building a new gorilla preserve on Maui, Hawaii, to ensure the future of great apes (and interspecies communication) for generations to come. Learn more at http://www.Koko.org.
