Bonobos are the least known of all the great apes and eerily close to us. When one looks you in the eyes like this male did, the boundaries between us and them become blurry. I’m back in the Congo to explore the world of bonobos. We are joined for this exciting expedition by Ashley Judd who is just as keen as Chris Eckstrom and I are to elevate the profile of bonobos and to support the people who care about them. This is among one of my favorite new images I made at Lola Ya Bonobo Sanctuary. There will be more images to come after we return from the heart of the Congo. Stay tuned!
