Press release:

ISU Professor heads international conference to consider existence of relict wildmen.

Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Professor of Anatomy & Anthropology at Idaho State University, will chair the program of the first World Conference on Relict Hominoids, (see http://www.isu.edu/rhi/links.shtml for conference brochure) to be held in South Africa, May 4-10, 2016. The event will be hosted by New World Expeditions and Zulu Nyala, a world–class wildlife photo safari resort. The conference program will feature nine international scholars, investigators and celebrities, assembled to discuss the possibilities and scientific evidence for the survival of unrecognized man-like species. Registrants will experience daily conference gatherings, as well as first class dining and wildlife experiences in this exotic setting.

“Continuing fossil hominin discoveries not only add to the bushiness of the human family tree, but also indicate that several of its branches have persisted into the recent past alongside Homo sapiens -- perhaps even into the very present. Are we the last hominin standing? Or could there be others – known by such names as yeti, almas, orang pendek, ebu gogo, and sasquatch – which have eluded scientific recognition? “ Meldrum asks.

Meldrum, who specializes in the evolution of human walking, is author of Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science. He also edits an on-line refereed journal, The Relict Hominoid Inquiry (www.isu.edu/rhi). He has examined hundreds of footprints attributed to sasquatch and other relict hominoids around the world, and has conducted investigations in the US, Canada, China and Russia. In the summer of 2016 he plans to participate on an international archeological team to search for remains of the ebu gogo, a 3-ft tall relict hominoid said to reside in the forests of Indonesia. The conference will be the first of its kind to consider the scientific context for the possible existence of multiple species of relict hominoids around the world. Meldrum will be joined by primate conservationist Ian Redmond, OBE (UK), author of Primates of the World; paleoanthopologist Ron Clarke, PhD (South Africa), discoverer of the most complete fossil hominid skeleton, dubbed “Littlefoot”; Himalayan mountaineering guide Thukten Sherpa (Nepal), executive director of Asian Trekking; primatologist Anna Nekaris, PhD (UK), editor of Folia Primatologica; wildlife consultant and ethnobotanist, John Mionczynski (USA), author of the Goat Packer; wildlife biologist John Bindernagel, PhD (Canada), author of North America’s Great Ape: The Sasquatch; nature filmmaker Dmitry Pirkulov (Russia); and celebrity adventurer Les Stroud (Canada), creator and host of Survivorman Bigfoot.

According to Meldrum, “The wildman figure is widespeard in human cultures. Is there evidence to suggest that there may be biological species behind these legendary being? This will be a singular opportunity for these renowned scholars and investigators to share and discuss their collective research on this controversial topic -- in person with one another, before their academic peers, and the public, who share a keen interest in this intriguing question.”

In addition to conference presentations and panel discussions, registrants will have the opportunity to personally meet and discuss with the panelists. They will also enjoy the amenities of the Zulu Nyala’s two lodges located on a 5000 acre game resrve in the KwaZulu Natal region of South Africa, with ample opportunities for wildlife viewing and photography, as well as witness traditional Zulu dance performances and village setting (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM3noTJ4yIY). For details and booking information contact Bill Cacciolfi, President - New World Expeditions at 937-213-1888.

    3. I think your actions are defend by an emotional attachment to hatred... I don't think anyone can argue with that. You are not even remotely interested in the subject, you're just trying to grind people down to leave.

      Can I ask you something? Your actions are being described by psychologists as being linked to psychopathy? How does that make you feel?

  2. Was not this conference originally to be this past fall in Sept. or Oct. A game preserve in Africa is a strange place to host it but I understand the time was mostly donated. It may have got pushed back due to the recent ebola outbreak. I wonder if the king of the jungle the lion would be as much afraid of the Forest Giant as all other species in NA are including Brown Bears. Probably never know.

    1. Lions are not afraid of Gorillas why would they be afraid of a guy in a monkey suit?

    2. Because "guys in monkey suits" don't range in the height of 9 feet tall, and don't weigh in the region of 800lbs.

    3. I'm more afraid of the ignorant people who come on here wearing troll costumes -well that is a costume isn't it ? Oh it isn't ? Oh my, than i'm really worried.

    5. From what I gather the conference was first originally scheduled for March 17-24 2015 but rescheduled to September 5th-12th 2015 due to the threat of the Ebola outbreak. I have no idea why that last date fell through but now it appears to be happening this coming May.

    3. 11;06 - nobody needs to make-believe up anything as the FACT is that there are no valid evidences for the "idea" of bigfoot...not anything that stands the test of scientific analysis...not as yet...that kinda gets to ya doesn`t it ?

      But there`s no escape from the reality that thus far there is not one scientist that will go on record as stating they are real...y`hear me now ? Not one !!

      ... "No evidences" I read you say? Should someone as ignorant as you really be touting what's factual or not? No... Go get make-believing and conjure a reason to not consider the science behind those two evidences as legit. Put your big boy pants on and for once demonstrate you actually know what you're talking about, then you might get to me.

      Oh... And by the way, here's one of many throughly credible scientist who's willing to go on record;
      "I am convinced that the Sasquatch exists, but whether it is all that it is cracked up to be is another matter altogether. There must be SOMETHING in north-west America that needs explaining, and that something leaves man-like footprints. The evidence I have adduced in favour of the reality of the Sasquatch is not hard evidence; few physicists, biologists or chemists would accept it, but nevertheless it IS evidence and cannot be ignored."
      John Napier MRCS, LRCP, DSC(Lond.) "Bigfoot- The Yeti and Sasquatch in Myth and Reality"- Sphere Books Ltd.

    6. ..That is a bit over the top 12:05..There are sincere sightings and some interesting prints as well as hair samples that have not been definitively linked to a known animal...Even if he came down on the side of non-existent, David Daegling thought enough of the evidence to write a book about the phenomena...

    2. Sadly Krantz did not live to see the day that bigfoot would be accepted by science much in the same way Van Gogh did not live to see the day when his art would be selling for record prices . But one day he will be vindicated and all the skeptical trolls on here will be eating crow or turds in their case .
      It's only a matter of time before one of the elusive creatures are caught or sadly killed and then science will have it's body to study . Until then the war rages against pathetic trolls who come on here with zero interest in the subject

    3. Joe, they were saying it was just a matter of time in the 70's. Nada. Then they said it in the 80's. Zip. 90's. Nothing. 2010's. Nothing but wind. Seriously, it takes willful denial to hold onto that position. They've nothing, because there's ....well, you figure it out. Plaster casts, a couple of old films, and some hair you can't identify, does not a Bigfoot make. Nobody has produced a body, because there is no body to produce. Luckily for Bigfoot authors, there's a happy audience.

    4. 1:45, it's easy to make a claim where the only argument is "it's only a matter of time". In a hundred years, " it will only be a matter of time ".

    5. you people are fools. mark my words, bigfoot will be proven in our lifetime. the problem is you have a bunch of uneducated fools running around in the woods making tons of noise hoping to find one or spending only a few nights in the woods with a ton of camera and lighting crew. It's about the same as loud sirens telling the creature we are here to catch you. We are dealing with very smart creatures that can survive deep in the woods where few humans have ever been let alone want to be so a very calculated ,scientific approach is needed or one will be found by complete accident which is how many sightings have occurred .
      in the 70s- just a few years ago the methods were largely amateur but now they have become much more sophisticated and the even bigger question is even if you are in the woods for weeks upon weeks doesn't mean you will even be within a few miles of one. Do you know how much are forests cover ? They are HUGE !

    6. They ARE huge...but that doesn't make Bigfoot real.
