Hope in the Hills

Species: Golden Monkey | Location: Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

I took this photo in Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. I was there with my school for service. On the weekends we were able to explore the beautiful nature of Rwanda, and this was one of my favorite pictures I took there. In 1994 this park became a site of the Rwandan Genocide which have suspended tourism and destroyed habitats for wildlife. After that, conservatory efforts by the current management have brought beautiful animals back to this park, as well as resumed tourism.
