Overview

Deep in the jungle—you’re suddenly face to face with the great gorilla. It’s clear that even here, you are sharing a moment with one of man’s closest relatives. He’s staring at you with those eyes that look so...human. Experiences like this have made National Geographic photographer Nick Nichols a fierce advocate for conservation of shrinking wildlife habitats.
