"Ben biraz ertesi gün gibiyim, eksiğim, unutkanım, öyleyim.." Edip Cansever @franslanting - Photo by @FransLanting When you work with wild chimps, you can’t hide your intentions—they see right through you. It’s best to be patient and polite. After all, when you’re following them on foot in the forest, you’re on their home turf. Only after we had spent several weeks tracking this group of chimps in southern Senegal did we experience the beginnings of acceptance. In this portrait of a young male named “Mike” you can feel his scrutiny. You can make a difference for the future of wild chimpanzees by supporting the World Wildlife Fund, Conservation International, the Jane Goodall Institute, and Neighbor Ape, founded by primatologist Jill Pruetz, with whom we worked on assignment for National Geographic to cover Mike and others in his community.
