The 'great apes' - bonobos, chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans, are our closest cousins. Indeed anyone who has ever had the privilege of spending time with them will confirm the remarkable similarities and the deep and moving connection they felt.
And yet we humans, the fifth great ape, seem callously able to turn a blind eye to their destruction for the sake of our own rapacious greed. Land, money, cheap ingredients and even components for our mobile phones are prioritized over our family, in a seemingly relentless and insatiable grab for what 'we' want, no matter the consequences.
Remembering Great Apes is time for us to say no, no more. We cannot, we will not, let this continue. It is a celebration of the beauty of these species and a cry from those who photograph and love them that things need to change, before it is too late.
This is the third book in the groundbreaking Remembering Wildlife series, a project only made possible by the generous wildlife photographers and supporters who march with us in our determination to give wildlife a voice. We cannot, we simply will not remember wildlife in pictures.
