Sierra Tahoe Bigfoot Research

This site is dedicated to the research of bigfoot, and it's habitat, in the Tahoe and outlying Sierra region of Nevada and California. We listen to witnesses who want to talk about their experiences, and keep them confidential unless otherwise requested. Our mission is to learn as much as we can about the possible existence of the sasquatch, in the hope that we can all gather a better knowledge of the species, then ultimately, we as a race understand that it's habitat, and way of life, must be protected.

World's Rarest Gorilla Makes Camera-Trap Debut

(Rob Muir, REUTERS)They wandered into camera range deep in the jungle of Cameroon's Kagwene Gorilla Sanctuary. The Cross River gorilla is the world's rarest. No more than 300 are believed to exist in the wild. The species has been decimated by habitat destruction, their range taken over by farms and natural resource exploitation. For the Wildlife Conservation Society, whose researchers installed the camera trap in February, the images were an unexpected but thrilling surprise. The troop appears healthy, although one of their number is missing a right hand, evidence, say the WCS, of the presence of snares within the family group's range in the past. The conservation group hopes its footage will draw global attention to the gorilla's vulnerability and spark efforts to help it survive.

Notice their apprehension as they approach the camera trap. This is in a Gorilla sanctuary, where they are known to live. This is the first footage that has been taken of the Cross River Gorilla. See the parallels?
