A juvenile mountain gorilla from the Kahungye group in Bwindi Impenetrable forest, Uganda. His inquisitiveness got the better of him and he came and sat on a branch for a couple of minutes less than two metres from me to observe his human visitor.
A young chimpanzee I photographed in Gombe National park, Tanzania which is where Dr Jane Goodall first went to study these animals sixty years ago. The chimpanzees in Gombe now represent the longest continuous field study of any wild animal.

A close encounter with this wild male Borneo orangutan in Lamandau wildlife reserve, Kalimantan, Indonesia. This area of forest offers real hope for the future and is where the Orangutan Foundation’s forest regeneration program takes place with tens of 1000s of new trees planted.
