COAPE SA and Johannesburg Zoo would like to give a really big Gorilla sized thank you to Liz Williamson from CATS Accounting in Rondebosch for their donation of a guitar and a Tablet for Mokoko the Gorilla! The tablet and guitar forms part of the Enrichment Program specifically designed for Mokoko, and will be used to encourage play behaviours.  Keep an eye out for the videos of Mokoko learning to use them on the YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVws488VqxE8--LmiWcKnjQ

 


COAPE SA have partnered with Joburg Zoo in South Africa to implement an enrichment programme for all the animals and bird in their care. COAPE SA offer courses on animal behaviour and training. COAPE SA and Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo have signed a five year partnership to assist, create and implement enrichment activities for the animals at the zoo. During this five year partnership the aim is to create stunning engaging and stimulating exhibits for all animals.

Mokoko

Karin Pienaar from COAPE SA has started working with Mokoko the gorilla and his keepers Katherine and Sharon, training him by using a clicker as a form of enrichment. “He is responding really well and enjoys his training sessions tremendously” says Karin. The team will also use clicker training to teach him to cooperate during medical examinations, to eliminate any stress that could occur during the process.
