At Bigfoot Lunch Club, after fans saw Dr. Anna Nekaris on Bigfoot: The Definitive Guide we got a lot of email asking for more Dr. Anna Nekaris, and we obliged. Ms. Nekaris has a very interesting angle on the the Yeti and more specifically, Mande Burung. Due to her research on the diversity of Asian slow lorises, including morphological, behavioral and vocal analyses, she has been drawn to many Asian environments. While conducting research in places like Java, Sumatra, Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore and Vietnam, she could not escape local legends of a yet undiscovered primate.
She is self described as:
…a member of the IUCN Primates Specialist Group, Conservation Working Party of the Primate Society of Great Britain, and on the editorial board of Endangered Species Research and Folia Primatologica. I have been studying the behaviour, ecology, conservation and taxonomy of Asian mammals since 1994, although my research has also taken me to Kenya, Uganda, Senegal, Costa Rica, and Trinidad. My primary interests lie with Asia’s slow and slender lorises.
Fans, you were correct to inquire about Anna Nekaris, she has in fact, an awesome presentation on the yeti (watch video below), hosted on The pulse-project.org.
