Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013

This image is in the running for the Gerald Durrell Award for Endangered Species (by Diana Rebman). Only the fifth set of mountain gorilla twins ever to be reported in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. The mountain gorilla is officially listed as critically endangered.

This picture was taken at the Lola Ya Bonobo sanctuary in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where Emilie Genty conducts her research on bonobo communication. This adolescent female kept that toad for hours and played with it like a doll, carrying it everywhere with her.
