Just Like Us

(Övrigt)
Beskrivning:

"Outstanding photography This book is a valuable contribution to the public's understanding of our remarkable 'near relatives.'" --Robert Bateman, wildlife painter and environmental icon

"Just Like Us is an entertaining and informative read that illustrates how one ordinary person can be a catalyst for positive change." --Jane Goodall, primatologist and bestselling author

For most of his life, veterinarian Rick Quinn ignored a deep longing to meaningfully protect the endangered animals that fascinated him. Then one day, he read two magazine clippings about the great apes and knew it was time to set aside excuses and find the means to help. Armed with his camera and an insatiable curiosity, Dr. Quinn set off for the front lines of great ape conservation. Just Like Us is a gorgeous tribute to our not-too-distant relatives as well as the courageous people who are risking their lives to protect them. In this remarkable memoir, we follow Dr. Quinn's seven-year journey across seven African countries and Indonesia, where he photographed each great ape species in its natural habitat. Using inspiring stories juxtaposed with stunning photographs, he illuminates the threats to great ape survival as well as the complexity of saving them. The result delivers an empathetic sense that these magnificent beings really are--strikingly so--just like us.
