Photo by @michaelnicknichols#Sponsored by @20thCenturyFox | I made this portrait of Fifi the chimpanzee in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania, in 1995 when I was documenting Jane Goodall for National Geographic. Fifi was then a mother raising Faustino, one of her nine offspring. Similar to Flo, who Jane began studying in 1960, Fifi was a spectacular doting mother and all of her children attained high rank in the community. She died in 2005 - the last survivor from when the study began. Jane and I deeply related to each other based on our mutual dedication to educate the world about wild creatures and nature in general.
