Word to the wise: If you establish a consistent interaction with a Sasquatch, don’t suddenly sit 50-60 feet closer one morning…
The Sasquatch Listening Project aims to learn about the species in the least invasive way possible, through extensive audio recording. Not only is this the least invasive method, it also promises to be the most fruitful, in that Sasquatch will not permit themselves to be videotaped or studied on-site along the lines of anthropological, or even traditional primatological, research. I have conducted field work in northern Vermont for that past seven years and now wish to expand the project with fellow volunteers dedicated to understanding species behavior and “personality traits” through careful, patient monitoring of home sites–that is, places where our neighbors spend significant amounts of time during some parts of the year. I hope to eventually assemble a geographically diverse team of listeners; we could call ourselves the Jane Goodalls of Sasquatch acoustics.
