A series of images from my latest article with National Geographic that published today, written by David Quammen (link in my bio).
Photo 1: Teddy Atuhaire was a four-year-old in Mukichanga village, when a chimp entered the house while her mother was gone and carried Teddy away into a tree. The chimp gashed her head, broke her arm so badly it had to be amputated, and dropped her. The years of recovery have been difficult. With her parents dead, her siblings dead or gone, she lives by occasional labor and care from her aunts.
Photo 2:  A wild chimpanzee, known as Max to researchers, lost both of his feet to poachers’ snares in two separate incidents. Some of the people living nearby set snares in the National Park to trap antelope, bush pigs, and other animals for food. Chimps, despite a taboo in Uganda against eating them, become unintended victims and are strong enough to tear themselves free. But the snare cable remains and cuts off blood-flow to the limbs. About a third of the chimps in one community in Kibale National Park have suffered snare injuries.
Photo 3: An aerial photo depicts the area where both Teddy and Max live. One side is dominated by human agriculture and the other is what remains of Kibale National Park. The pressures put on the land by both humans and wildlife have created these unintended conflicts between humans and wild chimpanzees.
I’ll continue to post images and stories from this longterm story that I began in 2011. Learn more @bulindichimps

These dramatic interactions need to be examined hardly, we need to realize how to live in accordance with Nature...
