16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Critically endangered Tokin Snub Nosed Monkey

The Tokin Snub Nosed Monkey is a critically endangered species with only about 120 left in Northern Vietnam. When I went to photograph these very shy animals I was told that I am one of the luck few of a handful of people who have actually seen this beautiful monkey. Image has been captured in it’s natural surrounds where it was sitting high up in the canopy of the forests high up on the lime stone mountain range.
