Major Bigfoot Expedition Seeking Participation From Corporate Sponsors and Journalists
“The only way to prove that some kind of
Bigfoot creature exists is to put together a big time expedition to capture
and study one,” according to Bigfoot explorer, C. Thomas Biscardi of
Redwood City, California. Biscardi is currently putting together that
expedition now and is inviting journalists and corporate sponsors to
participate in his “American Bigfoot Expedition,” set to launch in the
spring or early summer of 2004.
“‘The American Bigfoot Expedition’ will be both a commercial and scientific
expedition and we will also offer the rights to televise it,” according to
Biscardi, who has lengthy credentials when it comes to searching for
Biscardi’s first search for Bigfoot was documented in 1973 and then he
produced a documentary film in 1981, “In the Shadow of Bigfoot.”
The timing of this current expedition was prompted by the recent sighting
and news reports of an “albino” Bigfoot. Biscardi has seen and has a photo
of a baby Bigfoot with white fur. This
creature is not necessarily an
albino, but it does have white fur. The photo was taken by tracker, Peggy
Marx. The encounter happened while Marx and Biscardi were driving along a
logging road in the Shasta area of northern California. Marx was doing some
advance planning for a bear hunting trip when they ran across the signs and
scent of Bigfoot.
A photo from that encounter can currently be seen at
www.barrows.com/bigfoot.html. (The barrows.com website site is the site of
the advertising and public relations agency that is helping Biscardi
coordinate the corporate participation and the initial media relations for
This expedition will be offering companies sponsorship opportunities to
participate in the outfitting and equipping of the expedition as well as
the opportunity to bid for broadcast rights and merchandising rights.
“Everything that will be necessary for this expedition to become a success
will be open
to corporate sponsorship and participation,” according to Tom
Biscardi, “and that includes goods and services from outdoor gear and food
and water suppliers, to hi-tech communications devices, global positioning
equipment, computer equipment and everything else we will take along from
hygiene and health products to bug spray, deodorant and legal, insurance
and medical services as well as journalistic and scientific participation.
The expedition will make detailed observations of their findings for
scientific publication. These findings will encompass natural and
environmental studies, anthropological, botanical and zoological reports,
as well as sociological studies of the participants in the expedition as
the expedition progresses.
Companies that supply goods and services for the expedition will also be
eligible to send a qualified representative of their company on the
expedition. The sponsors will be asked to put up a participation fee and
supply their goods for the duration of the expedition
The key to making the expedition a success is knowing where to go to begin
this search for Bigfoot and having the experience and know-how to track
Bigfoot. Biscardi plans to begin the expedition with some detective work
into the recent sightings and known “hot spots” for Bigfoot sightings. The
primary tracker in this expedition, Peggy Marx, maintains maps with the
locations of numerous Bigfoot sightings on them in The Bigfoot Information
Center at Burney, California. Peggy Marx and her late husband, Ivan Marx,
have functioned as an unofficial clearing house for a multitude of reports
on Bigfoot sightings.
The actual locations that the expedition will be working in will be kept
secret for fear that thousands of amateur Bigfoot hunters will flock to the
woods and endanger the Bigfoot as well as themselves. The photos, findings,
stories and descriptions of the findings will be the property of The
American Bigfoot Expedition and will be offered for commercial sale, use
and distribution and
Companies interested in submitting proposals for participating in the
