A male Sulawesi crested black macaque (Macaca nigra) photographed in Tangkoko: this tiny Nature Reserve protects the last forest with a viable population of this endemic and rare macaques. Crested black macaques are hunted for meat, kept as pets and threatened by a shrinking habitat. Unpublished photograph from my @natgeo magazine story ‘A Fight to Survive’ (March issue)
