A wildlife biologist with over 30 years of field experience, Bindernagel has served as a wildlife advisor for United Nations projects in East Africa, Iran, the Caribbean and Belize. He holds a B.S.A. from the University of Guelph and an M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. His primary interest of study is the Sasquatch, an animal he claims is real and that he has been studying since 1975. His book North America’s Great Ape: the Sasquatch (Courtenay: Beachcomber Books, 1998) goes beyond the debate about whether or not the sasquatch exists and discusses the anatomy, ecology, food habits and behavior of the allegedly elusive mammal. He has studied more than 150 sasquatch reports since 1975.

In 1924, prospector John Ostman was walking inland from Toba Inlet, on the B.C. coast when he was abducted by creatures he described as “near eight feet tall with a big barrel chest and big hump on his back. His forearms were longer than common people. His hands were wide, the palm was long and broad, and hollow like a scoop. His fingernails were like chisels. The only place they had no hair was inside their hands and the soles of their feet and the upper part of the nose and eyelids.” This would prove to be the definitive description of the sasquatch that others would repeat again and again. B.C. biologist Dr. John Bindernagel looks at the accumulative evidence and sightings over the past 150 years in North America’s Great Ape: The Sasquatch (Beachcomber $25). 0-9682887-0-7
