Cryptozoology will only deal cryptids that seem to fit within the animal kingdom; Cryptids that we can identify as belonging to or related to a living or extinct specie. With the extinction rate what it is, I feel it is important to identify these animals in order to protect them before they are gone forever. Here is a quick overview of the subjects under study. We are not limited to the following, however.
Mokele-mbembe and other possible "prehistoric" survivors: The goal is to launch an expedition in the Congo , and subsequently in other areas, to establish the identity and geographical distribution of Mokele-mbembe. Research into other theoretical "prehistoric" survivors in other parts of Africa and elsewhere is also of concern here.
Big Cats of Britain: The existence of these animals are no longer in question, but their genetic identity is. The purpose here, through field studies, is to identify what specie or species are involved; and to protect these animals. The protection of people who encounter these animals also needs to be addressed.
Bigfoot and other mystery primates. Bigfoot (North America), Yeti (Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan), Alma (Caucasus mountains and Mongolia), Orang Pendek (Sumatra), Agogwe (East Africa), Yowie (Australia), Nguoi Rung (Vietnam), Yeren (China), Sisemite (Central America) are all regional names for unknown bipedal primates. The goal here is to establish a genetic identity for these primates; are they Hominids (related to man) or Pongid (related to the great apes)? This is further complicated by the fact that we are dealing with more than one specie.
Lake Monsters: When dealing with a finite body of water such as a lake, there needs to be sufficent room and a viable food source in order to support large aquatic animals such as Nessie of Loch Ness, Champ of Lake Champlain and Ogopogo of Lake Okanagan. Our investigations here will focus on Lakes that fit that criteria. Aside from the three just mentioned we will also focus on Lakes and Lochs perhaps not as well known, but sites that may give us a greater chance of success.
Sea Monsters: Due to the size of our planets ocean and sighting reports from all corners of the globe, we need to focus on areas with a large and more consistent history of sightings. Several of these areas have thus been identified. Among these are of the coast of British Columbia and Chesapeake Bay in the United States for some of the more classic "sea serpents" and the South pacific for a possible specie of giant shark.
Other Cryptids: The list is wide open; but here is a couple of examples. I have been receiving sighting report from the Texas Mexican border of Big Birds in the last couple of of years. There are prior reports in the area from the 1970's. Another area of study is the Amazon, with reports of various unknown animals and the giant anaconda.
