: The Bigfoot Discovery Project (BDP) accepts the Patterson/Gimlin Film of Oct 20, 1967 as THE type specimen for the Northwestern Bigfoot or Sasquatch. The BDP will add to the dialogue on the implications of the impending "discovery of bigfoot" by Western science and the general public, while offering hypotheses as to bigfoot's place in the biological and social order.
If the anthropologists are right, the only thing separating us from the forest giants is our culture. So let's revel in our humanness while acknowledging the beauty of the bigfoot's minimalistic, yet ecologically sound interactions with Mother Earth.
The BDP will seek to facilitate the discovery of bigfoot by sharing information, and attempting to "flesh out" the hairy biped's dossier. There is a large enough database of sightings and encounters now available to create a hypothetical "profile" of the bigfoot creatures. Accepting the P/G film as genuine, we have a model to compare with verbal descriptions in an effort to get a consensus on the bigfoot's physical characteristics as well.
This will be done against a backdrop of local history, as this area was once (and apparently still is) home to bigfoot, as were all the forests of the Pacific coast, and beyond. CapriTaurus has been an arts and crafts gallery, a folk music center and manufacturer of musical instruments. Now its the home of the Bigfoot Discovery Project.
The new CapriTaurus "complex," once complete, will include exhibits of local history, unidentified hairy bipeds, and folk music. It will house a research library of books, periodicals, and tapes on subjects ranging from ABSMs to UFOs alongside art, handcrafts and collectibles. We hope that a visit here will "edutain" you, and help to open your eyes and mind to things you may not have thought about before.Web site
