14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
This photo was taken during a wildlife census trip at Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park in South Africa. The purpose of the survey was to identify the abundance of certain type of wildlife animals (e.g. white rhinos) and where they were located. The management of the park would then used the data to plan for the resources needed to manage the park and to see how effective of the conservation effort. This monkey was playing in the camp site that I stayed during the trip.
