Say goodbye to the sexy primates
A real bummer of an article in the Guardian about Bonobos, the ape considered to be man's closest relative, being on the brink of extinction. Not least among the factors involved is the long-running civil war in Congo. So so sad.
I have a book called The End of the Game, full of pictures of elephants. It's mostly a sort of eulogy for the loss of habitat for and the decline in numbers of these beasts. I think there are probably so many beasts disappearing right this minute -- tigers and lions and bears, oh why?Post a Comment
