National Zoo Gorillas are the First to Participate in Heart Disease Study

Twelve-year-old Kwame and 10-year-old Kojo are the first western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) to participate in a study lead by the Great Ape Heart Project that will help veterinarians better detect and treat heart disease, the leading cause of death of male gorillas in human care.
