Very interesting to hear that accredited institutions may be taking a more serious look into this.
It' would, however, be nicer were some of these institutions to secure funding, possibly with the aid of sponsors like Nat-Geo for proper expeditions
by serious accredited scientific academics.
Currently, all we really seem to have in the field are self-proclaimed researchers and hodge-podge groups like BFRO, and the Erickson Project that for
all their seeming efforts, can't seem to get a grasp on a sober, reserverd scientific approach, without self promotional charlatan-like publicity
hype, along with all the community disappointments and questions of legitimacy that come with it.
As I understand it, there IS a legitimate field study attempting to track down and document Orang Pendek, which if your unfamiliar with OP, can be
described as a possible chimpanzee sized bipedal hominid, or miniature sasquatch of sorts.
Supposedly there's a personality named Melba Ketchum, associated with the controversial Erickson Project that is testing what is supposed to be
sasquatch DNA, but, we've as of yet gotten any results from any of this, and such is thus going to be questionable if or when results come up.
Any results will of course need be independently verified by alternate labs other than any associated with Ketchum, or the Erickson Project.
