Book: Tales from Gombe
The chimpanzees of Tanzania's Gombe National Park are probably the most famous group of wild animals in history, having been observed and chronicled for more than 50 years. Through studies initiated by the palaeontologist and anthropologist Louis Leakey and carried out by the primatologist Dr Jane Goodall, people worldwide know their names and stories. - Natural History Museum

Anup Shah and Fiona Rogers specialise in photographing wild primates. The first of Anup's many assignments for National Geographic was a story on the Gombe chimpanzees in March 2003. This was followed by the publication of three bestselling photographic books, Circle of Life, African Odyssey, and Serengeti Spy. He was featured in The World's Top Wildlife Photographers and in Horzu magazine as one of the five best wildlife photographers in the world. He has won a number of categories in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition and is one of the 10 ‘masters' in the Natural History Museum book The Masters of Nature Photography. Fiona Rogers' photos have been published as full length features in leading magazines including National Geographic, Smithsonian, Geo, BBC Wildlife and National Wildlife. - Natural History Museum
