Andrew Halloran is a primatologist who specializes in primate vocal communication. He has extensively studied chimpanzee calls and wrote a book on the subject titled The Song of the Ape. His current research focuses on the wild chimpanzees of Sierra Leone and how their calls are structured by both learning and environmental acoustics. Halloran is also working with local villages in Sierra Leone to find alternatives to hunting the very fragile chimpanzee populations in the area. In addition to his work with chimpanzees, Halloran has done work in Nicaragua and Costa Rica looking at capuchin monkey communication and working for the conservation of tropical forests alongside the Maderas Rainforest Conservancy.
