Early morning South India. I was following this group of 38 lion tail macaque for 3 days. This group had a lot of adult males. All of them had their own individual personalities, they played hard and fought even harder.
The alpha male was not the biggest, but it was clear by his attitude he was king, he walked and looked around as though he owned the universe. At times, all he had to do was give a look to stop others in their tracks, only the chosen were allowed to approach him. No matter what was happening in the group, grooming, fighting, chasing each other for food etc he was calm, collected and made decisions for the group he thought best and every one followed.
Even the bigger lion tail macaque could not intimidate him. He was the king in his mind and no one was going to change that.
What ever we think and feel about our selves we become.
How climate change affects monkeys
Monkeys are primate animals. They mostly depend on leaves and also fruits for sustenance. The CLIMATE CHANGE which leads to El Nino and La Nina events are affecting these primates more because it decides the availability of this sustenance. These events lead to flooding, severe drought, and also storms. This leads to scarcity of food and also water. This, in turn, is a pathway of new diseases that would affect the monkeys.
Even the food that is available has fewer fiber leaves, meaning the monkey does not get its needed strength. Female Monkeys end up malnourished and also give birth to smaller offspring with less birth rate. These factors contribute to a decrease in population.
Conservation: How we help animals affected by climate change, and how you can help
I have always believed in giving back. When I began to realize how much damage has been done to the animals and the planet due to climate change, I knew I had to do something. The direction led me to conservation groups.
As a fashion photographer, I pay the models. In wildlife, I can not pay the animals, so to give back, I’ve developed relationships with conservation organizations such as the Wolf Conservation Center, and World Animal Protection.
A percentage of the sale of these monkey pictures is donated to these organizations. So when you buy photography from Ejaz Khan Earth, not only do you have an inspiring photo of some of nature’s finest creatures on your walls, but you will also be helping them.
