CHIMPANZEE CHILDREN OF GOMBEJANE GOODALL Book Number: 90097 Product format: Hardback
Acclaimed primatologist Jane Goodall introduces her favourite young chimps from the Gombe National Park where she has studied the behaviour of these fascinating animals for more than 50 years. She combines her insights on chimpanzee culture with Michael Neugebauer's engaging photographs of family groups, baby chimps feeding, playing and grooming, looking for places to sleep, grabbing overhead branches, and fun shots like Gremlin's oldest son Galahad playing with a multicoloured umbrella. There are also images of beautiful Bushbucks who are very fierce when protecting their babies and the Red Colobus who takes huge leaps from one tree to the next. Sometimes young chimps and young baboons play together and we can see Gaia and Hector becoming really good friends. 10" square approx., full page colour photos out in the wild forest of these majestic animals and their plight. Light-hearted and beautiful, probably designed for children ages seven and up and of course interested adults. 32pp, 26.9 x 25cm.
