             The Bigfoot Research Project

The Bigfoot Research Project is a benign, scientific
investigation designed to prove the existence of a
large, bipedal, hair-covered hominid believed to be
living in the forested mountain ranges of the Pacific
Northwest.  The project, conducted in association with
the Academy of Applied Science, Boston, MA, is the most
professional and sophisticated approach ever attempted
on the subject and the only one of its kind in the
Country. (USA)  Over thirty years of experience
provides the background essential to the professional
research and methodology of this unique program.

Techniques and procedures used in the Bigfoot Research
Project include the compiling of both current reports
and historical evidence; the statistical computer
analyses of these will provide the foundation essential
to intensive field studies.  Through this latter is
envisioned the primary objective of the program which
is, with appropriate documentation, contact and
communication with one or more of these extraordinary

                 What is known to date

Although many years of research into the Bigfoot
phenomenon now lie behind us, much of what we believe
we know comes mainly from prudent speculation.  The
reason for this lies in the extreme difficulty in
studying the creatures in the vast and formidable
terrain that is their habitat.  (Since W.W. II, seventy-
three aircraft have crashed in this area and remain
undiscovered.)  However, these deliberation combined
with extensive studies of sighting reports and
footprint finds lead us, at the lest, to the following

General:  Nomadic, nocturnal (with daytime activity
only as a result of disturbance)
Habitat:       Forested mountains of the Northwest
Eating Habits: Omnivorous
Height:        Over 6' 0" average
Weight:        500 lbs. or greater
Strength: Far in excess of man, very powerful
Eyesight: Superb visual proficiency
Smell:         Highly developed capability
Hearing:  Exceptional acuity
Demeanor: Inoffensive, shy, non-aggressive
Locomotion:    Bipedal

Indications are that the creatures are more man-like
than ape-like and that they possess unusual
intelligence, on a level possibly close to our own.  An
example of this is something our studies have
discovered, that they are aware that their footprints
may attract unwanted attention from man, the only
entity that represents a danger to them-and as a
result, they hide them.  This is something not found in
the animal kingdom.  This extraordinary hominid may
well be the mysterious wild man that the great Swedish
scientist, Carolus Linnaeus, (1707-1778) called Homo
Nocturnus, the Man of the Night.

                     The Evidence

The evidence that supports the reality of the Bigfoot
has its foundation in four basic areas:
               The 1967 film,...
                     Footprints and other finds...


The history, in literature, is found in old newspaper
reports, the journals and letters of early settlers and
prospectors of the Pacific Northwest, and the archival
records such as those of the Northwest Fur and Trading
Company.  The earliest known report is from the London
Times and is dated 1780.  Among the native people of
the Northwest, of course, the record is much older, and
indeed, every Indian tribe has a name for the hominids
in its own language - Sasquatch, Omah, Tsonaqua,
Bukwas, Selatiks, to name but a few.


Credible sightings are a vital part of the evidence.
Sightings are rare, only a few each year, indicating
extreme wariness on the part of the creatures combined
with a skilled ability to use physical features of
their natural habitat for concealment.  Again, there
may be fewer hominids than we think.

                    The 1967 Film.

This short piece of 16mm film shot in northern
California in October, 1967, is to date the only
believable photographic record of a real, living
Bigfoot.  A recent discovery by the Bigfoot Research
Project, of the similarity of a footprint found in the
same area six years prior to the shooting of the film
sequence, further supports the credibility of this
unique footage.

             Footprints and other evidence

Footprints, averaging 14 to 15 inches and made by a
large, bipedal hominid at least six feet in height and
weighing up to 500 lbs., continue to be found.
Recently some were found that contained dermal skin
patterns (like fingerprints), a significant factor in
hominids.  Other evidence, including strong odors and
powerful screaming roars, further support the reality
of a large group of, unclassified primates, living
undiscovered in the mountain forests of the Pacific

                  We need your help!

Help us solve one of the most fascinating and popular
mysteries of our time by joining the growing number of
people who contribute credible information to The
Bigfoot Research Project.  all information is treated
confidentially and is used solely for the purpose of
benign research.  Sightings, footprint finds, reports
of sounds relative to the phenomenon, all contribute to
the computerized search for behavior patterns.  The
Bigfoot Research Project considers all information
valuable and invites you to become a member of the team
determined to solve this great mystery.

great discovery, please contact our office at 1-800-
