In this installment of Sasquatch Tracks, we are joined by researcher and educator Darby Orcutt, who discusses an ambitious new project that is seeking to collect and analyze anomalous biological samples, in an effort that could ultimately help reveal the existence of relict hominoids like Sasquatch.
Darby Orcutt is a faculty member at North Carolina State University where he is a librarian, instructor, and researcher. He teaches and writes about science, technology and society while also building collaborative scientific teams to tackle complex problems and fostering conversation between researchers and the broader public. However, Darby is known for his work at the intersection of science and the strange.
Have you found a biological specimen that seems to be unusual? Orcutt and his colleagues are currently seeking to analyze such samples (including genetically), and those who submit their samples will receive any forthcoming results. You can learn more about Orcutt’s project by clicking here.
Also, if you are interested in contributing to this study of allegedly morphologically anomalous samples (which could help us to test more samples and conduct deeper analyses), a tax-deductible gift to NC State University can be made here.
