Pierce, Florida, it is the largest privately-funded chimp sanctuary in the world, with over 220 chimps retired from laboratories, entertainment, and the pet trade. Andrew received his PhD from Florida Atlantic University studying chimpanzee communication and behavior. Andrew utilizes his expertise to assess the care and welfare of each chimpanzee at Save the Chimps and come up with individual care plans to ensure that every resident can thrive at the sanctuary. Andrew co-founded the Tonkolili Chimpanzee Project in 2012 in Sierra Leone to promote chimp conservation in an area where human interactions are increasing. He is the author of the book Song of the Ape.
