Mogens Trolle made numerous contributions and studies of primates and wildlife animals to the public throughout the course of his more than 25 years of work with wildlife animals on all seven continents of the world. He captured those moments in photographs and made them public. With a photo of a proboscis monkey, he took first place in the “Animal Portraits” division of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest in 2020.
