What do you get the gorilla who seems to have it all?

Okay, I know – he doesn’t look 30 at all. Still, it’s a celebration and everyone is invited.

The Buffalo Zoo is inviting the WNY community to help celebrate Koga, the Zoo’s Western Lowland gorilla’s 30th birthday.  Zookeepers will have the exhibit decorated for the special occasion – and they will be giving Koga his birthday presents!

Koga, the 400 lb gorilla has been at the zoo since 2007.  He is the father to three gorillas at the zoo; Amari, Nyah, and Kaylin.

WHEN: Monday, August 14, 2017 from 10 to 10:45 a.m.

WHERE: The Buffalo Zoo, 300 Parkside Avenue
