I wanted to introduce you to Andrew Westoll. I know lots of you that support great apes already know who Andrew is but for those of you who don’t I will tell you. I met Andrew through twitter when I first got started speaking out for chimps. He was one of the first people that I followed and on the list of people I hope to meet one day.
Andrew is a primatologist and a writer. He has done some really cool stuff, like spending a year in the Central Suriname Nature Reserve following capuchin monkeys. Who wouldn’t love following monkeys through a rainforest? He also was able to live by, watch and get to know 13 chimpanzees that had lived for decades in a biomedical lab. These chimps are at Fauna Sanctuary which is outside of Montreal, Quebec.
I am really excited about Andrew’s new book “The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary”. I have been waiting for it to come out. My mom ordered it for me so it should be here soon. Andrew has written about all the chimps he has gotten to know at Fauna. I know this is going to be a great book and when you order it a portion of the proceeds goes to help the chimpanzees at Fauna.
hile you wait for your book to come read Andrew’s blog “The New Animalist”. Here you will learn more about the writer and the primatologist, Andrew Westroll. Also you can follow Andrew on facebook & twitter.
