Hey everyone, as you may have noticed, we’re back after a…fairly long hiatus. “We” being us web monkeys who do online PR. The OP has never gone anywhere and has been quite busy the last few years. This year has been a rough one, and as a result both research and life have been fairly slow, but we’re looking forward to a fresh new start in the new year with all of you friends, colleagues, and fans and a return to field expeditions, conferences, and just a grand old time. And while the events in the coming months will be unpredictable and chaotic, you can be sure to check back here to get your Bigfoot (and related scientific topics) content fix should our in person reunions be further delayed. We found some interns hibernating in the back room and will now be regularly maintaining this site again with research updates and educational content. Merry Christmas, stay healthy, and ‘Squatch Bless!
