Sadly, the world-famous gorilla has passed away at the age of 46, at her home at The Gorilla Foundation in the Santa Cruz mountains. Animal psychologist Francine "Penny" Patterson began teaching Koko to sign while she was a graduate student in 1972, work which eventually became part of a project at Stanford University.
She was understood to have been able to understand more than 1,000 words and was able to understand some spoken word english.
That same year, Schroeder filmed her for the feature docu "Koko: A Talking Gorilla", which played in Un Certain Regard in Cannes.
The first cover in 1978 featured a photo that the animal had taken of itself in a mirror.
Koko's social nature was well documented and she was famous for having adopted a pet kitten, which she named "All Ball".
"Koko's capacity for language and empathy has opened the minds and hearts of millions", the Foundation said in a statement.
