This past April, the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology published in the journal Science that the Ivory Billed Woodpecker, long thought to have been extinct, was found in the bottomland swamp forests of Arkansas. The correlation to Bigfoot research is this: It took a very well-funded and equipped team of 18 full-time searchers, 15 member Bioaocustics Research Crew, 2 member production crew and 35 member part-time crew 1 year, 7,000 hours in the field to record a dozen or so brief sightings and 4 seconds of video.
If we only had a fraction of that funding in the search for a bipedal primate that may be roaming the same forested bottomlands that the Ivory-billed Woodpecker is, maybe we would have similar results.
The Texas Bigfoot Research Center is focused on doing just that on its own dime.
