As a wildlife biologist, photographer and writer, I have been active in conservation since 1976. The role of forests in climate change mitigation has brought a new focus on my study animals - apes and elephants - as their role as 'gardeners of the forests' makes them relevant to future carbon storage in tropical forests. As chairman of the Ape Alliance - a coalition of 80 NGOs, and this year as Ambassador for the UN Year of the GOrilla, I have been active in raising this issue in the media.
