Our mission is to provide information on the North American sasquatch/bigfoot, a community forum, and a central repository of collected evidence and vetted eye witness accounts of sasquatch sightings across North America to aid the efforts of those people legitimately researching and accruing evidence of this elusive creature. Our primary goal is to gather a body of evidence to first ensure the scientific acceptance and recognition of the sasquatch as a species and the political protection of said species. When the first goal has been obtained, we will continue to study, catalog, and share the biology of sasquatches. In addition to this primary purpose, we endeavor to support sasquatch researchers across the country/world through open sharing of information, techniques, and ideas.
So we want you, your time, your talents, your voice, and ideas. We want to grow into something special that we can all look at, invest in, and be proud of. Please join us.
Money and the SRA
Money is always a touchy subject in the bigfoot community, mostly because so many people have used the subject as a quick way to try and make a buck. It seems no one trusts anyone anymore in this community. But, as life in a free market would have it, you cannot run an organization like this without some form of income.
The SRA is organized as an LLC, similar in nature to other more conventional groups with similar natural goals like the Audubon Society or Ducks Unlimited. The company will in fact make money, if all goes well, but such money will be turned around and reinvested in the search for sasquatch to fund the following:
- The internet services and operating costs of the SRA
- Equipment for the support of the SRA’s primary mission
- Field research and expedition expenses (eventually, if we grow large enough we’d like to fund grants to young primatologists/anthropologists willing to study these beings in the field)
- Administration costs including the possibility of hiring employees as the organization grows (the founders will not take salaries from the SRA until such a time as the organization grows sufficiently to require one or more of them to devote more than 10 hours a week to the organization. We all have full-time jobs/businesses of our own and are not looking for a new source of income at all.)
To these ends, the SRA will post the basics of our balance sheets on the members section of our website so that all members will know exactly what their dues and talents are going towards.
