Founded in 1995, the BFRO is now the oldest and largest organization of its kind — a virtual community of scientists, journalists, and specialists from diverse backgrounds. The researchers who compose the BFRO are engaged in projects, including field and laboratory investigations, designed to address various aspects of the bigfoot phenomenon. As a result of the education and experience of its members and the quality of their efforts, the BFRO is widely considered as the most credible and respected investigative network involved in the study of this subject.
It has always been the policy of the BFRO to study the species in ways that will not physically harm them.
The BFRO organizes and reports observations and directs expeditions to places where the observations have occured. Through this process, the BFRO steadily improves the size and scope of its collective expertise about these animals.
The overall mission of the BFRO is multifaceted, but the organization essentially seeks to resolve the mystery surrounding the bigfoot phenomenon, that is, to derive conclusive documentation of the species’ existence. This goal is pursued through the proactive collection of empirical data and physical evidence from the field and by means of activities designed to promote an awareness and understanding of the nature and origin of the evidence.
