عکس منتخب نشنال جئوگرافیک. دوربینی که در دست این گوریل هست متعلق به یکی از جهانگردهایی هست که اونو به گوریل داده. متاسفانه یکی از خطرات این کار احتمال انتقال بیماری از گوریل به انسان هست.
Photo @tbfrost | This is NOT my camera in the gorilla's hand! A tourist dropped it on the trail when we were with the mountain gorillas in Rwanda. And it ISN'T good this young male gorilla is holding it because it is an easy way for human diseases to transmit to the gorilla. BUT if humans think they are so special , that we are smarter than all other creatures , why on earth would this mountain gorilla have picked this camera up and examined it for nearly 10 minutes, pushing every button , curious about each beep and flash of the LCD. Before Jane Goodall's discovery of chimpanzees using tools in the 1960s most people thought animals were dumb, instinct driven robots. Her simple observation shattered the notion humans are the only thinking beings on the planet. And yet - nearly 60 years later - much of the public and many scientists too measure an animals intelligence against our own. But there are some researchers that think that is the wrong approach. They think the question we should be asking is what do other animals know that we don't. They wonder Is it possible there are creatures on our planet smarter than us, living in worlds we can't even imagine, let alone decipher! I like to think so! Check out the work , for example, of Denise Herzing at the Wild Dolphin Project, who is conducting ground breaking research on wild Atlantic spotted dolphins. Hero And mentor of mine, National Geographic Photographer Brian Skerry, did a wonderful story on dolphin cognition for Nat Geo Magazine and it featured Denise, check it out !
