Koko the gorilla is the voice of Nature at COP21



Noé lets nature have its say for this edition of the COP21. How? With Koko, a female gorilla who belongs to one of the rarest species on earth which can communicate using sign language, and the only one that can send a message to mankind : the preservation of biodiversity must be written in the Paris Agreement.

Note from The Gorilla Foundation : This video was made with footage of Koko reacting after she has been informed about what is at stake at COP21. After being familiarized with the issues, she was allowed to improvise. The video has been edited for brevity and continuity.

Noé donne la parole à la nature à l’occasion de la COP 21. Comment ? Grâce à Koko, une femelle gorille qui est l’un des rares animaux à savoir communiquer par le langage des signes et le seul à pouvoir adresser un discours à l’humanité : la préservation de la biodiversité doit être inscrite dans l’accord de Paris.

Aidez la nature à faire entendre sa voix !

    It's true that humans are stupid . Yes , I am a human too I can't deny that . But some humans are trying to protect nature and some of them are destroying it . Most of the humans are using harmful chemicals , deodorants , sprays that harm the environment . They don't hunt animals only to survive . They hunt them for their fur and skin . They lock them up in cages and sell them to circus . These are bad things and people who do these things should be punished . We , humans do not only harm the nature but we also harm ourselves . Lots of humans are dying because of terror everyday . Why a creature would hurt his own race ?! It doesn't even make any sense ! People insult each other just because they think differently / have different opinions . Humanity is so messed up . If we don't fix this while we still can , we won't only cause the destruction of the world but we'll also cause the destruction of ourselves , animals and plants . Everything may seem so nice for now but it won't last long if we don't do something .

    The fucked up thing is most people will see this as just an animal, its another living being capable of comprehending guys. It has a brain, it has eyes and ears. It may not be able to speak walk or live like us but that doesnt mean they dont know something is wrong. Animals are beings too. The sooner we realize this the better but i guess no one wants to be the crazy who listens to animals talk

    Hey humans, maybe you are pretty stupid. First off, tell Koko to fuck off.

    This is manipulated. He doesn't know anything.

    I think it's pretty obvious that Koko doesn't have any complicated concept of what's happening to the earth and it's coached in some way, but of course the message is still true. I'm kind of amazed though that there are some of you who really think Koko understands the issue, bless your naive hearts.

    If Koko is indeed commenting, she is taking the questioner's word for it that there is a so-called climate change problem. Best they can do is tell her that "Man is breaking the ground she lives on."

    Sorry Humans are not that powerful yet ( to control climate either way , mind you we cannot even make Honey without bees and you expect US to control the unproven climate ?) and the real humans in charge ( money ) of the Earth do not have time or the will to see these great things . just being honest @

    Honestly, this ape that we named Koko, is a person. She's aware of herself. She's sad when things go wrong. And she's happy when they go right. Have any of you ever felt joy at the sight of a kitten? Koko loves kittens. She has love for creatures of a completely different species. And that love of hers even extends to us humans. She has friends among us. And we have a friend in her. And yes, she has limited access to the levels of intelligence that we humans pride ourselves in. But that only means that she has more space to think about the big questions with simple answers that we often ignore out of self interest. This inter-cultural mental illness that is our selfishness does not plague her. So she speaks from her heart. And we should listen. She's only got six more years until she would surpass the average lifespan of a gorilla IN CAPTIVITY. And I have a very strong feeling, based on this video, that she has some words worth listening to.

    On earth, nearly half of the human are protecting the earth in action, they appeal the seriousness of human being, which is the worse hebavior of destroying the earth. Hundreds of years till now, We have seen lots of posters, animations, movies that human created in order to save the earth, but how does that matters? Compare now to the early centuries, our mother nature's health quality has been decreased day by day, however, human's awareness of saving the earth has been rised, but, did the situation change? Any? Thousands of funnel stands up towards the sky, tones of fuel dripped from the ground, trees are cutting down and numerous species extinct. We organize, We appeal, We protest, we inspired by the animal's spirits, including Koko in this video. BUT THINGS ARE GETTING WORSE AND WE CANT HELP. think about what is the main human factor that affect the world's equal system, the power that we couldn't change. Despite all of that, as a tiny role of human, WE ALSO NEED TO DO THINGS IN ACTION EVEN IF IT'S TINY. Please, save the world. Sometimes human are ruthless and they only cares about the money, we destroy all of it just for our pleasure. But keep in mind that this is the shortest pleasure that human could ever have and it does bring a serious consequence. But who knows? It's only the matter of time.
    SAVE THE EARTH,OUR MOTHER NATURE.IF SHE DIES, WE DIE WITH HER.

    -True minds of me, a 15 years old Chinese girl.

    Sure it's scripted but any animal except man can see when its environment is being wrecked. Even a bug or a microbe gets that message and moves on. But the real problem is that humans don't really give a shit. We live moment to moment, grabbing everything we can, unwilling to give up anything, exploiting every possible animal, vegetable, mineral, matter and energy. Now we're trying to access other dimensions to see what plunder lies there. It can't be changed. It's who we are. We have the intelligence and motivation to explore everything that exists and that's what we're gonna do. In our defense, nature created us and gave us all the tools to do these things. "Mother" nature also created a system of worldwide slaughter of other living creatures as a means of survival. How you gonna change that? Food pills? Made from what, soylent green crackers? Anyone that keeps animals knows they're a helluva lot smarter than they're given credit for. Any living thing has to have intelligence to contend with its environment or they'd quickly die. This is how it is on planet earth and probably every other inhabited planet in the universe. Life, death and kill for survival. I didn't invent the system and it sucks but there it is. And it's one of the main reasons why man created the fiction of religions and living happily ever after in heaven.
