There are now only around 800 individuals left on earth – here we meet an entire family group, from new born baby to the silverback. He explains how to get close to these charismatic characters and demonstrates how to communicate with the gentle, intelligent primates that we have pushed to the edge of extinction. Michael has worked all his life in nature photography. His stunning images have been used in over 80countries and published in over 1000 books.
