Uakari, Humboldt‘s Lost Monkey
In 1800, the German biologist Alexander von Humboldt went on a journey to South America, where he discovered, among other things, a peculiar primate with a short tail. Since then, nobody has been able to find this animal again. Jan Dungel, biologist, painter and science illustrator, sets out with his team to sail the Orinoco, tracing Humboldt’s journey. He wants to prove that uakari exists and capture its first photographs.
