Trailblazing Through African Jungle
Photograph by Nick Nichols

A Pygmy guide leads Fay’s team through the Goualougo swamp, where gorillas, elephants, and chimpanzees have had little contact with humans. Fay and his colleagues are fighting to protect this part of the Ndoki forest, which he calls the “last place on Earth.” The area lies inside a logging concession just outside the protective borders of Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park.
