Chimpanzees, wolves, and gorillas are among the most charismatic social mammals. Like humans, they build relationships, communicate, reproduce, establish territories, and adapt to shrinking resources. We identify with them as species, groups, and even as named individuals. They’re also under threat. Join biologist turned photographer Ronan Donovan as he talks about his work documenting our fellow social animals, what we can learn from them, and what we can all do to protect them.
