Christophe Boesch has studied the chimpanzees of the Taï National Park, Côte d'Ivoire, since 1979 and provided precise descriptions of the specific hunting techniques of this population and detailed accounts of their nut-cracking behavior. He has observed the chimpanzees of Gombe and Mahale in Tanzania to deepen our knowledge of cultural differences in this species. Together with Andrew Whiten, he initiated the chimpanzee culture project that culminated in a paper on chimpanzee culture in 1999. He recently launched the first archaeology project on chimpanzee technology.
