The zoo said Colo was an "ambassador" for gorillas and inspired conservation efforts. She was the first zoo-born gorilla in the world.

The world's oldest known gorilla and the first to be born in a zoo has died at the age of 60, the Columbus Zoo announced on Tuesday.

Colo, the matriarch of the Columbus, Ohio, zoo gorilla family, was born in 1956 at a time when much less was known about the western lowland gorilla and conservation. Her surprise birth at the time made headlines around the world and sparked greater interest in the endangered species.

"She was an ambassador for gorillas and inspired people to learn more about the critically endangered species and motivated them to protect gorillas in their native habitat,” said Tom Stalf, the president of the zoo.
