Perhaps Linnaeus would switch things around if he could see it now? (taken in Kibale national park in Uganda…the success of this park and survival of these our closest non human relatives hinged on the collaborative effort of local people, the Wildlife Conservation Society and the wise actions of a number of true Homo sapiens)
