Makoko, a 29 year old West Lowland Gorilla has been living alone for almost 10 years. Gorillas are social and family orientated animals who crave touch and affection. Makoko spends his days bleak and lonely, staring into space and ignoring the play areas in his enclosure. Please sign and share! If we can't find a sanctuary to take this beautiful, depressed, lonely, desperate male at the very least let us petition Jhb zoo to find him a partner.
