Koko & Ndume Need a New Roof Now!
Koko enjoys the freshly rejuvenated grass after a heavy rain.
Hello Gorilla Foundation friends!!
We are reaching out on this platform, because we are in urgent need of your help. After many weeks of rain and hail storms in Northern California (and the anticipation of more to come), the roof to Koko and Ndume’s play yard and sleeping quarters needs replacing, as it has sustained damage from the very heavy water flow.
Replacement of the gorilla roof has become an urgent necessity, but it is also a financial burden as this was not anticipated in our annual budget. We estimate that it will cost us approximately $35,000 to replace the roof over the gorilla’s play yard and sleeping quarters. The costs for these roofing projects are broken down as follows:
Gorilla Sleeping Quarters Roofs: $12,880
Outdoor Play Yard Roof: $19,120
New Custom Gutters for Roofs: $1,000
Unforeseen Construction Costs: $2,000
To enable Koko and Ndume to continue enjoying their covered outdoor enclosure, please make a donation of any size today, and help us pay for these urgently needed repairs!
Please know that when you donate to this campaign you will be directly affecting the lives of both Koko and Ndume. We will share the results - Koko and Ndume enjoying their newly re-covered play yard - so that you can see the significant impact of your donations.
Thank you for your continued support!

Ndume walks quickly and bipedally to avoid getting his hands muddy.
Koko and Ndume both enjoy spending time outside during warm and sunny weather.
Our campaign has officially raised over half of our goal of $35,000 thanks to your continued efforts. We give thanks to each and everyone of you who has either donated to or shared our campaign. As there is still time prior to the scheduled roof work, we hope to come even closer to our goal through sustained exposure through sharing. Again, we thank you all very much for your support!
We have officially ended our first week of the campaign, and are nearly halfway to our goal of $35,000. As we have already received over $15,000 in donations towards our roofing projects, we are incredibly thankful to you all for supporting Koko and Ndume. Without your assistance through donations and sharing we would not have come this far in such a short amount of time. Please have confidence that through your continued sharing of our campaign, we anticipate coming even closer to reaching our total goal of $35,000.
Thank you all very much!
