Harry and Kamili are two L’Hoest’s Monkeys living at Harry, aged 15, and Kamil, aged 5, met each other in Parco Natura Viva, where they immediately developed a strong bond, engaging in mutual grooming and food sharing. In the wild these primates are found in montane tropical rainforests of the Albertine Rift in Central Africa at altitudes ranging from 900 to 2,500 m. Although more terrestrial than most other guenons, they forage and sleep as a group in the canopy, where they participate in mutual grooming.
L’Hoest’s Monkeys are threatened by deforestation on the eastern edge of their main range as a result of agricultural expansion. Parco Natura Viva is supporting the European ex situ conservation programme (EEP) of the L’Hoest’s monkey and developing educational activities with visitors to raise awareness on the protection of African primates and their fragile ecosystems.
Sending a big thank you to for the opportunity to photograph these monkeys.
