Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

One Response to “Orang Pendek Film”

  1. Alligator responds:

    Well, they better find and classify the Orang Pendek quickly. One-third of Sumatra was deforested between 1982-1990 alone. The fastest rate is occurring in the central province of Riau where 85% of the rain forest is now gone. Wild elephant populations have dropped from 5,000+ in 1992 to 2,800 today. The Sumatran tiger, rhino and false gavial are all teetering on extinction on the island. Any undescribed bipedal ape has to be in the same dire circumstances. Indonesia has really pushed the development of plantations on the island.
