As the temperatures plummet, the monkeys gather in the hot-spring pools to stay warm and socialize.
One of the founders of Vital Impacts, Amy Vitale, speaks about her reasoning for the initiative: "Each photo has a powerful story and illustrates how small and deeply interconnected our world is. When we see ourselves as part of the landscape and part of nature, then saving nature is really about saving ourselves. Our fate is linked to the fate of animals."
