This Month in Photo of the Day: The Power of Photography

Golden snub-nosed monkeys (Rhinopithecus roxellana) pose at Ocean Park Hong Kong.

Sartore photographed the monkeys as part of his Photo Ark project, through which he is documenting thousands of rare species. Animals with "Dr. Seuss looks," like these Chinese primates, bring visitors and research money to zoos, Sartore says.
