Baby Gorilla

A six-week-old baby gorilla is cared for by a zookeeper at the Cincinnati Zoo, after it was abandoned by its mother at a zoo in Texas. Joel Sartore captured this moment as a part of his Photo Ark project, in which he aims to photograph as many of the world's captive species as he can.
