The idea for the Olympic Project was first thought of by Richard Germeau and long time Bigfoot researcher Derek Randles.  Richard, a Washington native, has an extensive background in law enforcement and investigation.  Derek, a landscape contractor and wilderness guide in Washington State, is currently a field investigator and tracker.  Wally Hersom, the main benefactor for the Olympic Project, provides all the equipment to make this effort possible.  Long time researchers David Ellis and Paul Graves provide high quality track casting, field audio recording, witness investigation and many years of wilderness experiance.   This five year study will hopefully provide the first clear pictures of Bigfoot along with photographic documentation of many apex predators and ungulates living and moving throughout their natural habitat.  Through this web site you will be able to follow our study that began in February 2009 with monthly updated photos of all the creatures we capture on film.  We hope to further the research efforts of all Bigfoot researchers with the data we collect.  Clear, well documented photoghaphs will not prove the existence of this primate, but will open the eyes of many scientists, helping pave the way for more serious research and species verification.  Please enjoy this site and feel free to contact us with your ideas or suggestions.  See our photo gallery to view updated pictures.

The Olympic Project would like to announce Our last expedition of 2014.  The expedition / retreat will be held from our research base camp, situated in the beautiful Olympic Mountains.  Trip dates are..September 19th through the 21st.  Our guest speakers include Ron Moreheard, (Sierra Sounds), Todd Neiss and Paul Graves.  These trips are designed to help educate and instruct researchers and enthusiasts on how to be more effective, and better prepared to conduct research here in the Pacific Northwest.  Along with presentations from our guest speakers, there will also be (6) classes including, track casting, infield audio recording, wilderness survival, backpack preparedness, DNA evidence gathering and protocol and proper evidence documentation.  Camping will be on site, and the hiking and scenery is second to none.  Come join us, and we will give you the tools to be more effective, and more prepared to conduct thorough, more complete investigations and field research.  Please e mail for more information and registration.


Olympic Project mission statement:


The Olympic Project is an association of dedicated researchers, investigators, biologists and trackers committed to documenting the existence of Sasquatch through science and education.  Through comprehensive habitat study, DNA analysis and game camera deployment, our goal is to obtain as much information and empirical evidence as we can, with hopes of being as prepared as possible when and if species verification comes to fruition.  Our studies are conducted in a non-invasive manor with respect and sensitivity to probable habitat we believe this amazing species inhabits.
