Black crested macaques are critically endangered due to illegal logging, a cruel pet trade and the demand for bush meat. Seeing them in the wild was a truly humbling experience, especially since humans are responsible for their biggest challenges. It’s hard to imagine how these majestic animals may become extinct in the near future. By taking this picture I wanted to capture what would be lost if we don’t protect them.
