The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, or BFRO for short, is a group founded in 1995 by a group of amateur Bigfoot researchers in the US and Canada dedicated to the study of the Bigfoot phenomenon.1 The main goal of the BFRO is to "resolve the mystery surrounding the bigfoot phenomenon, that is, to derive conclusive documentation of the species' existence."2
The BFRO website includes a database of reports of sightings and other evidence (including reports of audio recordings and footprints), a form for making reports, an FAQ section, and a collection of related media articles.
Sighting reports are followed up by experienced members, typically with a telephone interview, or, where possible, with inspection of the site accompanied by the witness. This information is appended to the reports. Some older reports do not have such review information attached.
Reports are available for the US and Canada, and are organised by state. A map for each state highlights counties with high numbers of reports. Similarly, a listing of states (US and Canada are separate) gives the number of reports for each state. Another page on the website shows recently added reports.
The BFRO also leads expeditions to areas of Bigfoot activity. The expeditions are open to non-members.
