About this book

Packed with 165 pages of superb colour images, bringing out much of the intimate knowledge that primatologists have culled over the years about gorillas and how they live. The final chapter ponders their fate, under imminent threat from civil wars and deforestation, indiscriminate hunting, and the use of gorilla body parts as fetishes and souvenirs. Ammann has been responsible for publicizing the commercialization of the bush meat trade and its impact on African wildlife, helping push it to the top of the Africa conservation agenda.
